Let me put on my author hat for a second: I’ll be at Book Expo America — that’s a huge annual publishing industry thing in Chicago — on the 5th and 6th of June (I’ll actually be flying in on the 4th, but it’ll be fairly late and then I have to check in and have dinner with my publishers, so it’s not like I’ll see anyone). What’s more, I’ll be doing an author appearance and signing books on June 5th from 10am to 12pm at the Portable Press booth (booth #3840). The book I’ll be signing is the first Book of the Dumb.
I’m not entirely clear on whether the Expo is open to the public (I’m pretty sure you need to be at least tangentially related to the book industry) but if you’re planning to go, you know where I’ll be at least part of the time. I do expect I’ll do some wandering about the Expo — we’re talking thousands or books and hundreds of authors, which seems like a fun way to spend a day or two — so if you’re attending and want to meet up or something, shoot over an e-mail and let’s see if we can coordinate.
