Hey y'all, just a reminder/heads up that Norwescon is this weekend. If you like this sort of thing then you probably know about it already, but just in case you don't, I thought I'd remind you. I am probably not the biggest nerd at the bookstore (that's why you love us, right? So many nerds to choose from?), but I am happy to nerd out on a certain author who'll be there this weekend. CORY DOCTOROW IS COMING! Since I work in the Kids & Teens department, I know him best for Little Brother, one of the neatest young adult novels to come out in the last few years, and one that I feel confident recommending to pretty much anyone, teen or adult, science fiction fan or not. But he's an amazing guy for many other reasons, including being a serious activist working for digital freedom and naming his daughter Poesy Emmeline Fibonacci Nautilus Taylor Doctorow. NERDS RULE!
If you can’t afford Norwescon or don’t have time—it's priced for tech nerds more than book nerds—that’s okay, because he’ll be in the bookstore on Monday. That’s right, this Monday, April 5th, 7pm, 50 feet from my desk. I’m freaking out already. In fact, you should come just to see how lame I get around my author crushes (Sherman, that’s why I turn pink and run over to shelve in the stacks, not because I don’t love you). It’ll be a whole panel of authors, including Mark Henry, Jeanne Stein, and Jaye Wells. And Cory. Like, right inside our store. Ohmygosh.
And if you do stop by Norwescon, say hi to our science fiction buyer Duane if you see him. Shout out, tall guy!
