BEA - Day 3

BEA Volume III

Day Three

The last day!!

Farrah and I

There wasn't much on my schedule for Thursday. Most of the bigger booths are done with their large book drops. I'm glad I went, though, because I got to meet some more great people and pick up some new books.

-Brandon Mull, author of THE CANDY SHOP WAR (middle grade title for my son). He was fun to talk to.
-Jeri Smith-Ready, author of SHINE. I didn't think I'd be able to get a copy of this but I did! She was in a little booth tucked in the back of the exhibit floor so I was able to get in line and meet her. She's very sweet! I told her that Ginger over at GReads! recommended this series.

I met up with Farrah, Britney, Gabi, and Amy and we wandered for a bit.

AND THEN I met John Green!!!!! Yes, really, truly!!! I even talked to him and didn't drool on myself or anything. I gave him a bookmark for my book! :) :)

 Farrah's boyfriend Hector met up with us and we made a plan to see the Statue of Liberty with Erika and Tirzah. Lunch first at the same pizza place as yesterday (it was that good!) and then...on we went! :)  And here's a video all about it (at bottom).

Freedom Towers

We then headed back to Hotel Penn where I packed my bags and said goodbye to Tirzah and Erika. I'll miss you two!!!
Train back to JFK airport, flight to LAX (again with the turbulence!), and then home! I'm very glad to be home. I'm so fortunate to be able to attend BEA and look forward to attending next year. (I hope!) We'll see what next year brings...

If I met you and didn't acknowledge you on my blog, please let me know! I'll add a link to your blog. :) (My brain was/is a bit fuzzy from jet-lag both ways. It appears that it takes a while to get back to normal.)
