ALA, DC, SBBT, and other Abbreviations

Thanks, thanks, and more thanks to dcist.com, the D.C. Stanford Club, Sepia Mutiny, MotherReader, Zee, YALSA, Liz, Fuse#8, and others for announcing my book launch party at the D.C. Public Library next Saturday. There's still room to squeeze in, but please RSVP so I can plan the food. I'm ready to bhangra, are you? Politics and Prose Bookstore is providing copies of First Daughter: Extreme American Makeover, but they'll only have a few on hand so mostly we'll be dancing like this:



I'll also be signing copies of Rickshaw Girl at ALA's annual convention in D.C. from 1-2 p.m. on Saturday at booth #2910. Stop by and say hi if you're in the vicinity.

Sameera closed out her blog tour today over at Sara's Holds Shelf. Meanwhile, I had a great time being interviewed by the astute Kelly Herold as part of the SBBT. Here's the full schedule, courtesy of Master Organizer Colleen Mondor:

I'm so glad you've mastered YouTube. This was awesome. I love how she's all "Yeah, it's okay that you grabbed my scarf and pretended to spank me. I can't resist your mad elbow movements and Marlboro shirt."

Jen Robinson said...

Boy, do I wish that I could come to your party! That darned trans-continental thing really gets in the way sometime. I'm sure that it will be a huge success, and I look forward to seeing pictures.

I had to find a braid-flinging video because I promised Liz that she'd be flinging hers around.

And Jen, we will miss you, and TadMack and Little Willow and ... hey, wait! I'm having another party in San Jose this summer, so I can invite all you California beauties! Stay tuned ...

Jen Robinson said...

Oh, how exciting! I'll definitely stay tuned for a San Jose party. I haven't been able to meet my CA counterparts yet, either, so that would be a nice opportunity.

Mitalie,
Looking forward to meeting you and bhangra dancing!
