Between now and ALA


I'll be signing Operation Yes during the Annual Conference of the American Library Association here in Washington, D.C. Look for me at 2:00, Saturday, June 26, at the Scholastic/Arthur A. Levine Books booth. I'll be the author handing out little green army men. I predict a few battles might erupt in the aisles. Perhaps one of the LGM might work his way onto a book cart for the Sixth Annual Book Cart Drill Team World Championships. Or be spotted at the Newbery/Caldecott banquet cheering for friends Marla Frazee and Liz Garton Scanlon (All the World) and Joyce Sidman (Red Sings From the Treetops) and all the other winners/honorees.

I'm also excited about the KidLit Drinks Night on Friday, June 25, at RFD (Regional Food and Drink) from 7-9. All are welcome! Details here.

I hope to see many, many friends at ALA, including some of the Poetry Seven, my DC KidLit Book Club, and the awesome people who create Arthur A. Levine and Scholastic books. However, between now and then, I have a draft to finish. So this is my last post until ALA rolls into town. See you soon!

P.S. For ALA conference goers, I put together a list of fun literary things to do in D.C. Add to my list if you like.

P.P.S. Don't forget to leave a comment over at TeensReadToo if you want a chance to win a copy of the audio book of Operation Yes---I found out the contest stays open until the end of June.


  1. I'm looking forward to seeing you at ALA! In the meantime, good luck with that draft, because I'm looking forward to seeing your next book, too.

  2. I am SO looking for you!!!! I'm having a late lunch with my editor on Sat (don't have time yet) but I'm hoping to come by your signing.

    I'm signing Sunday at 11; FSG

  3. Wish I could go, too! Also, if I haven't said so before, I love the new blog design. :)

  4. Sara,

    Here's hoping I bump into you at ALA and have the opportunity to meet you in person. I'm going down to Washington on Saturday, June 27th. Grace Lin got all the Blue Rose Girls tickets for the Newbery/Caldecott dinner. We have lots of great authors and illustrators to cheer on!
