First Second at TLA
Where in the world is First Second?
We're currently in Houston, setting up for the Texas Library Association show.
It's my first time at TLA, so I'm very excited to be there, having heard nothing but good things about it. Now I shall see for myself!
For all you attending TLA, we're bringing author Ben Hatke -- who wrote and illustrated Zita the Spacegirl, and its sequel Legends of Zita the Spacegirl, which (if the gods-of-mailing smile upon us) we shall have a limited number of advance copies of at the show. Ben is excellent, and he may even do flips upon request! Also he draws things.
Ben will be speaking at the Friday 8am Texas Maverick program, signing in the autographing area at 10am, and then talking to Texas teenagers after that!
Zita the Spacegirl is a candidate for the very prestigious Texas Bluebonnet Award this year.
We hope to see you in Texas! We're at booth 1700, exhibiting with our parent company Macmillan.
