I would like a poster of today’s xkcd to hang on my wall: Diagram of the Up Goer Five.
Also, I like this (surreal!) video about Finnish ice fisherpeople.
Okay. Here’s my public events schedule for NCTE-ALAN in Vegas next weekend. Location of all events: The MGM Grand Hotel & Casino | 3799 Las Vegas Boulevard South | Las Vegas, NV 89109. Which is just WEIRD.
Sunday, November 18th
11:00 AM – 12:00 PM: Signing in the Penguin Booth, #101-105.
12:00 PM – 12:30 PM: Signing at Anderson’s Bookshop, Booth #147.
Monday, November 19th
8:40 AM – 9:15 AM: ALAN Workshop — Fantasy Panel. With Rae Carson, Shannon Hale, and Maggie Stiefvater. MGM Grand | Level Three | Premier Ballroom | Rooms 309-311.
9:15 AM – 10:15 AM: (silent) ALAN Book Signing.
I… cannot explain why that last book signing is silent. But I will try to find out.
ETA: Ha! Okay, regarding the silent signing: ALAN takes place in one big ballroom, and the next panel will be going on during the signing. So we will have to whisper. Thanks for explaining, Laura!
