So we're trying to figure out what is going on when. It seems like everything is overlapping or running at the same time. We were able to get to the last hour of the open of the exhibits, and we're very excited to get back tomorrow but thoroughly exhausted as well. It's generally coming down to divide and conquer so we can all go see the speakers we want to, have authors sign books, and grab up a couple more advance reader copy books. Here are our thoughts so far:

  • Arianna is trying to figure out if she's going the the first Auditorium Speaker Session with Nancy Pearl and Mary McDonagh Murphy; it's running at 8am a full hour before the exhibits open.
  • Avi and Malinda Lo are signing books first thing at 9am
  • The second session speaker is at 10:30 - Sue Monk Kidd and Ann Kidd Taylor
  • Laurie Halse Anderson is signing books at 11am
  • Kadir Nelson and Jerry Pinkney are signing at 12pm
  • Mo Willems and Doreen Cronin are signing at 1pm
  • The third session is starting at 1:30pm, it's Salman Rushdie
  • Melissa Marr, Gail Gibbons, and Karen Cushman are signing at 2pm
  • Jon Sciezka is signing at 3pm
  • Cornelia Funke is signing at 3:30pm
  • Christopher Paul Curtis is signing at 4pm, which is unfortunate as an awesome discussion on science fiction and fantasy is happening at the same time
  • 5:30pm is the Opening General Session with Toni Morrison
And that's it for Saturday! Let's see if we can do it all, it seems like an epic list but we're up for the challenge. Check back throughout Saturday, as we're all going to be blogging throughout the day about sessions we go to and authors we meet. Hope you're all in air-conditioned bliss.
