It’s been quiet over here on Geek Girl, with the exception of the ever-busy Between the Lines Book Club. Our family survived The Great Bike Trip of 2016, San Diego Comic-Con, and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. We crawled home, got sick, recovered in time to have houseguests who we adore, and started back to school (Dear Daughter just started seventh grade). Since we got home I’ve been fighting a miserable fibromyalgia flare up (Team Fibro Represent! Whee!) and always feeling about fourteen steps behind – but also feeling happy to be home, in my own bed, with two cats and a dog sleeping on me. Here are some links to posts about Comic-Con and Wizarding World:
SO. Now that Dear Daughter is Back to School, is back to other events for me, and here’s a list of them!
I’m doing two talks with the Sacramento Public Library this Fall. On September 18, 2016, I’ll be taking part in “Sacramento Public Library Presents: To Kill a Mockingbird.” This presentation is happening in partnership with Sacramento Theater Company, who is putting on their own production of the story. It will open with live music and include a Q&A with the play’s director. The presentation takes place on September 18th, at 1PM, at Central Library.
I will also be giving a presentation about the role of water (and lack of water) in Californian Literature. This is part of a series
October 23, 2016, at 1PM, I’ll be giving a talk on the role that water plays in Californian Literature. It’s part of the series “California H2O” and my talk will be held at McClatchy Library.
From September 30 – October 2, I’ll be a guest at Convolution 2016: The Age of Monsters. Convolution was the first convention that put me on a panel, and it’s become a family experience for me – so many of my friends are there, my daughter and husband come along, and the atmosphere is relaxed and joyous. I can’t wait! Location: Hyatt Regency SFO.
I hope to see some of you in person sometime this Fall!
