Three Things Thursday

1. This month there are lots of writers coming to UT, including Neil Schusterman. Here is what Chris Crowe says:

Neal Schusterman, author of Unwind and many other books, will be at Weber High School on Thursday night, October 4 for a public event: http://www.whs.weber.k12.ut.us/content/images/stories/Banners/NealShusterman.pdf

Two terrific YA authors and one of the sharpest YA literature experts in the US are coming to the annual convention of the Utah Council of Teachers of English. The conference will be held in Salt Lake City on Friday, October 5. Here’s more information: http://www.ucte.info/index.php/annual-conference/68-2012-annual-conference

2. On Saturday, Ann Dee (if she is back from vacay) and I are going to be a part of Authorpalooza at the Barnes and Nobel in Orem. There will be a TON of authors there. It’s a 4-hour dealio starting at 4 pm. I will not be there the whole time. But Ann Dee likes this kind of thing and may stay an extra hour or two.

So far, faculty is:
Sharlee Gleen
AE Cannon

I may teacher again this year, too.

We’ll keep you informed here. 🙂

  1. Keturah and Lord Death is being re-released in less than two weeks. I can’t wait to get my hands on that new pretty cover! Maybe Martine will let us capture her to sign books this time. 🙂

    Ilima, I’m excited about the re-release of Keturah too. Finally!

    The WIFYR faculty looks awesome so far.
