    YA Scavenger Hunt Authors Announced

    This summer the Hunt will have two teams (RED & BLUE) of 27 authors each. I’m on the RED team, which befits my fiery personality (of course if I were on the Blue team, it would befit my cool, laid-back personality–I’m adaptable). Prizes will include ALL of the following books, plus more, and The YA Scavenger Hunt will commence on August 1st. Mark your calendar and come on back!
    THE RED TEAM (Yay!)

    I will be attending the 2012 ALA conference June 22-26 in Anaheim. Though I’m not signing in the Harper booth, I will be at the Harper breakfast and then out and about in the exhibits hall, haranguing librarians. If you’d like to be harangued or just say hi, I’ll be the middle-age guy with a beard, glasses, and an egg-shaped head. I will be attending the 2012 ALA conference June 22-26 in Anaheim.
