New York on My Mind: RWA 2105

For me, resident of faraway Homer, Alaska, the journey to New York City feels absolutely epic. It starts with a 5:30 AM wakeup call and a drive into town, where a tiny plane will take me to Anchorage. Then there's the flight to Seattle and a red-eye to JFK airport, where at 6 AM the next morning I will suddenly be confronted with the equivalent of Homer's entire population in about three minutes. I'm still a little unclear on the details of how to get from JFK to my cousin's apartment, but I have a good 24 hours to figure it out.

Anyway, the purpose of this trek is the 2015 RWA National Conference, which is being held at the New York Marriot Marquis in Times Square this year. Do you live in the New York area? If so, I hope you'll come to this amazing event. I'll be signing books at the RWA Literacy Autographing, at which all proceeds promote literacy. It takes place from 5:30-7:30 on Wednesday, July 22. Here are all the details in one handy graphic. The best part? It's completely free and open to the public! And if you come say hi, I'll have a special gift for you.

Also, if you're attending the conference, I'll be part of Avon Book's open signing on Thursday, July 23, from 9:45 to 11:15 in Westside Rooms 1 and 2. That event is always a blast!

See you in New York!
