There's something about that name that's always sounded like a theme park to me, or a World's Fair–ride the river rafts of Twain Town! Tilt at windmills in Quixote Junction! Get carried helplessly through the soul-crushingly confusing waterslides of Kafka's Splashocracy!
And so on.
Anyway, Book Expo America is only sort of like that. It's the big annual book industry convention, and this year it's in New York City from May 31 to June 3. If you're attending, I'll be signing copies of my next picture book, Pssst! at the Harcourt booth on Friday between 11:00 and 12:00, and signing copies of my first novel, The True Meaning of Smekday, at the Hyperion signing area between 3:00 and 4:00.
I've also donated some Frankenstein Makes a Sandwich art to the ABC Annual Secret Garden Silent Auction that takes place Friday night at Copacabana. If you're going, look for me there. I'll be the guy who looks like me.
