On the Conference Road
I'm headed for Louisville, KY this weekend for the Imaginarium Convention. After three other SFF fandom cons and a Meet-the-Author event, I'm excited to rub elbows with writers interested in advancing their skills and careers.
I talked to lots of people about books, mingled with the other authors, and had a chance to see the inside of a very unique establishment, Lie'brary on Beck. Special thanks to the proprietor and wonderful staff of this establishment where the decor focuses on books. Even the bathroom doors look like bookshelves! Pretty cool place to talk about books and raise money for the local library. All in all, a fun time.
Now my sights are on Kentucky. I've never been to Imaginarium, but the enthusiasm of the coordinators is contagious! I'm, also, excited about my schedule for this event because I get to talk about some of my favorite workshop topics. Let's face it, once a trainer, always a trainer.
Here's my schedule:
- Great news from Africa on the increase of births in an area with dwindling numbers.
- Annabelle of the Texas Safari Ranch finally gave birth to a baby girl! You can watch new giraffe, Betty, and her mother on the live giraffe cam.
- And the Dallas Zoo had a giraffe birth on Independence Day!
