YA Lit Symposium

Today, I leave for the YALSA 2010 Young Adult Literature Symposium.

While I haven’t made up my mind about the programs I will be attending, I signed up for three extras.

First, the Friday preconference Meet Them Where They Are and Open the Door: Urban Teens, Street Lit, and Reader’s Advisory.

Second, the Bill Morris Memorial Author Luncheon featuring Vaunda Micheaux Nelson.

Third, the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center which includes a tour. 

Are you going to be there? It’s always fun to meet up in person! I’ll be online at Twitter at LizB. The hashtag is #yalsalit10
