More fairies + two events this week »
I’m getting lots of questions about the HTDYF tour and how it’s going etc. I’ll be posting about the first leg of the tour—Northern California—in the next few days. In the meantime what I’ve loved most is meeting other lovers of YA books—students, readers, booksellers, sales reps, teachers, librarians—and talking about our favourite books. It’s been a blast. Especially this year when there have been so many amazing books.
I can’t wait to find out what everyone’s reading in Philadelphia, Larchmont, and next week in Michigan.
Oh, and don’t forget, next week is Banned Books Week as this excellent editorial reminded me. (Via Lisa Yee.)

More info and links on Palin and book banning:
Librarians Against Palin
It includes links to articles dating back to her council days – ie sourced wherever possible, not just allegations.
