This year I was lucky enough to be invited to join April Is For Authors. This group not only puts on a fun, exciting event for readers and authors - but they also connect schools with visiting authors (and ya'll know that's my jam!) And best of all I met some amazing fellow kidlitters like Jen Swanson and Stacy McAnulty. I'm 96% sure I left a pair of flip flops in the hotel and it's still my favorite conference ever.
