Yes, yes I know all capital letters are one of the most annoying things ever but I'm really really really really excited to share with you pictures from my recent trip to the Texas Library Association Convention to make you rage inside with jealousy.  Seriously.  If you are prone to mania or violence you may want to take some deep breaths and tie yourself to a chair before you scroll down.

Behold!!!  Teen author and all around awesome honorary Library Ninja Robin Brande!  She's totally got her game face on while I look like a total smiley-faced dweeb.  Ninja Brande has donated two signed copies of her latest book Fat Cat to our Summer Reading Club so keep alert.  Both Ninja Amy and myself thought Fat Cat was one of the best books of 2009!  Fun Tidbit: did you know Robin Brande can actually kick your behind in a swirl of black belt insanity?!  It's true!

And finally, I got to meet the untouchable, wonderfully polite Suzanne Collins, author of the Hunger Games series.  She was very hard to meet so I felt very honored to be one of the few to meet her.  If you haven't read Hunger Games, you should so you can compete in Woodland West's Hunger Games Trivia Challenge this summer!  The date will be announced soon.  And don't forget Mockingjay, the final book in the trilogy comes out in August!!!
You know you're jealous!

Ninja Jenny! It was SO much fun to meet you! I loved hearing about all the fantastic things you're doing at your library. You ninjas are completely awesome.

Thanks for stopping by and introducing yourself! I was really happy you did.

Hi Robin! Thanks for letting me talk your ear off. It was awesome to finally meet you!! I look forward to whatever book you publish next! Ninjas rock...and tune in soon for pictures of Amy and me in a cardboard boat race of epic proportions (seriously...)! The race is next weekend.

And Fathima, dont' be sad! If you participate in Summer Reading Club you could win one of many autographed books by awesome authors like Robin Brande! We'll unveil all the prizes in June.
