Just got back from YALSA's very first Young Adult Literature Symposium ever. It was a pretty wonderful experience. I got to hang out with such YA lit luminaries as Barry Lyga, Kaza Kingsley, and Margaret Peterson Haddix. I even got to share the stage with Terry Trueman, an incredibly charming mixture of hyperactivity and genius, both in person and in letter.
Then, of course, there were the librarians. I think I'm going to start praying that one of my kids become a librarian the way old school Catholic parents used to pray that one of their kids become a nun or priest. I always come away from a room full of librarians feeling inspired.
Some folks at the conference asked about the Powerpoint I used during my pre-conference keynote. You can download it here for the next seven days.

My latest project is up on the Funny Pages section of the New York Times Magazine today. It's a short story called Prime Baby, and it'll be serialized every Sunday for the next 18 weeks.

SLG Publishing one of my publishers. They put out Gordon Yamamoto and the King of the Geeks and Loyola Chin and the San Peligran Order, the two graphic novels I did before American Born Chinese. They're good folks who publish good comics. If you haven't checked them out before, do. And might I suggest Street Angel, my favorite SLG book of all time? (For you librarians and teachers out there, it's appropriate for 9th grade and up, imho.)
