Chicago and IRA

Back in the US for two measly weeks, and already I’m getting back on a plane. To Chicago!

On Monday night I have a public event at Anderson’s Bookshop in Napierville with D. J. MacHale, author of the Pendragon series.

Here are the details:

Monday, April 26
7:00PM – 8:30PM
Scott Westerfeld & D. J. MacHale Joint Event
Anderson’s Bookshop
123 W. Jefferson • Naperville, IL 60540

Anyone can come to this event!

On Tuesday, though, I’m headed to the International Reading Association’s annual do, where I’ll be speaking on a panel and signing. You must have an event pass to get in to these next events (which means you’re probably a librarian or English teacher or something cool like that).

Tuesday, April 27
9:00 a.m. – 11:45 a.m.
Symposia: “The Illustrated Teen: An Intersection of Text and Image in Contemporary Young Adult Literature”
Featuring Scott Westerfeld, Holly Black, Henry Neff, Stephen Emond, and Elizabeth Patridge
Educators: Lisa Morris-Wilkey and Susannah Richards
Location: McCormick Place South Building • Room S403b

2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Signing at the Simon & Schuster Booth (#1725)

Hope to see some of you Chicago folks there!


I’ll also be at Books of Wonder in NYC tomorrow, with Sarah Mylonowski, Justine Larbalestier, and D.J. MacHale!

  6. Allison-

    You don’t need a pass for the Monday night event! For the stuff on Tuesday, I’m not sure. Google “IRA Reading.”

  7. Oh I wish I was there in IL! I loved the pendragon series and seeing you both would be awesome! Sadly, though, I’m in the boring racing state.

  8. Uglies Series- Cyberprep-Cyberpunk.
    featuring a leisure-driven, happy society instead of a gritty one where technology and body modifications are used for recreation and pleasure.

  9. Hi, I’m Giovanni.

    La guerra sta per iniziare,
    sei cigolante o darwinista?

    The war is about to begin,
    are you a clanker or a darwinist?

  10. Aw man! one of my best friends lives in naperville! im so jealous. just two hours away…and with school on monday…blegh.

  11. So close, and yet so far! I’m about two hours from Chicago, but my 5:50 AM wake-up on school days stops me. Come to Wisconsin! We’ve got cheese!

  12. There you go, Scott. Pretty awesome reasons to come to Wisconsin and Minnesota. You won’t regret it! I mean, come on, how can you turn us down? Well, never mind, I guess you can. But, why would you want to?

  13. Oh my gosh oh my gosh oh my gosh!!!!!!!! I wish i could go. You and D.J. are my two favorite authors ever!!!!! Hey Scott-la are you going the Phoenix or Albuquerque anytime?

  14. Sigh. Wish I could be there!

    On another topic:

    SCOTT-LA: I went to a John Green/David Levithan signing of their book Will Grayson, Will Grayson tonight, and John Green says that his favorite book he’s read this year is Leviathan! Awesome much!

  15. come back to texas? it’s just not the same since you’ve been away. before you lose your accent and forget all about the lone star state! besides, the mexican food sucks north of here anyway.

  16. Jessica-la: He probably updated in a different timezone.

    Haley-sensei: 同じ名前があるだね。本当に先生ですか?

  17. Feeling spontaneous in English class:
    Oh Romeo! Romeo. Wherefore art thou Romeo!
    Okay, back to class…

  18. OMG I love your books and D.J.’s AHHHHHHH It’s like heaven! lol too bad I live in Texas, Or i’d be first in line!

  19. the funny thing ( as in funny to ME ) is nobody will probably never know what Deryn looks like as a girl ( wonder what she’d look like? )

  20. p.s you have the same birthday as my friend ( who misprononces your name ( westerfield) ironically ) and we know an italain person ( creepy right?) and me and the only other person I know who read Leviathan acidently got 2 other people to read it ( darn i am good =) )
