Boston Bookish Schmooze 5/31

With Laurie Halse Anderson pouting about not being at Book Expo America (BEA), and the BEA Twitty Party rising into the top ten trending topics on Twitter, a few of us who aren't in New York decided to host a Boston Bookish Tweetup.

When? Sunday, 5.31.09, 2 p.m.

Where? Porter Square Books, Porter Square Shopping Center, 25 White Street, Cambridge, MA 02140, (617) 491-2220. Plenty of parking.

Who? Anyone who loves books. You don't have to be on Twitter.

What? Informal chat and coffee, ARC swap, sharing of best social media tips for bookish folk, and Lauren MacLeod of the Strothman Agency is going to talk trends in Middle Grade and Young Adult fiction.

Why? Because we're not at BEA, and feeling sorry for ourselves.

COME JOIN US!

  2. Wish I could be there! I went to BEA for a day. It was CRAZY busy. I can't wait for the RWA national conference. That's going to be even awesome-er than BEA (I think). Will you be there?

    Have fun!

  3. Can't come due to living in England but my friend Bonnie might be there. Miss New England. Loved living there. Have a great time and if anyone's on twitter, tweet me news/pics. :)

  4. just read that back and realised I might have implied Bonnie is Miss New England. Don't know whether that's true or not. What I meant was that I miss New England :)

  6. Thanks for a great time this afternoon.
    And because you told me about the bit.ly metrics, I know I'm getting 80+ blog hits at the moment thanks to my post about it, which tells me there is considerable interest!
