I am seriously excited for ALA in San Francisco this year! My wife talked me into a long weekend in SF, so I'll be stopping by ALA for a few events. While I'm sadly not doing any author events, I will be there and up for a chat if you've read my blog and/or you're looking forward to I AM DRUMS in 2016.


Book Signing - Feb. 1, 2015 at 2:00 PM (CANCELLED)
ALA 2015 MIDWINTER MEETING
McCormick Place
Chicago, IL

If you can't wait to read I AM DRUMS, ALA is where you can snag a copy. I'll be signing ARCs/galleys and getting into other forms of mischief, including but not limited to mashed potato food fights.

I will still be at ALA Midwinter, but will not be signing galleys as a result of Egmont USA closing.
