And, the caveat . . . those who want to talk to/meet me . . .
I just wanted to let you all know that I have another commitment that evening at 6:30. For this reason, I will probably have to leave the dinner between 6:30 and 6:45. Now that JW has noted (which I think is great) that there will be a ‘mingling’ period first, and then patrons will be free to eat whenever, I am hopeful that this open period will allow me to meet, as quickly as possible, a great many of my blogging buddies. So (and I don’t mean this arrogantly in the least), if you want to meet me or talk with me, the earlier the better; I will likely have to leave by 6:30ish.
(Do, though, feel free to grab me in the book exhibit if you see me and introduce yourself; or better yet, attend my paper at 9:00 am on Tuesday morning!)
