Texas Library Association Conference: Authors

What do I like to do at library conferences? I like to take photos of authors. I collect author photos. 

Here are my favorites from this year.

Tony Abbott, author of Secrets of Droon and Underworlds series, as well as Firegirl,
now out with a new book, The Great Jeff

Juana Medina, author of early chapter book series, Juana & Lucas

Catherine Stier, author of many books for children including If I Were a Park Ranger,
who, like me, is a recent Texas Master Naturalist.
She had lovely national park animal cookies.

Laurie Halse Anderson, author of Speak, now out with her memoir, Shout

Margaret Peterson Haddix, with the first book in a new series, The Strangers

Illustrator and author Don Tate, with his two of his latest books,

Christian Robinson, Caldecott winning illustrator of Last Stop on Market Street,
with his new book, Another

For more wordless photos, go to Wordless Wednesday.

    1. I think I will always go to TLA, and I hope to go to BookExpo next year.

    All those happy faces, I hope each does very well with their books! :D
