No, today is not mysterious…I learned that Saturday, January 21, 2012 will be MYSTERY DAY on the exhibit floor at ALA Mid-winter in Dallas. I’m so excited – happily I live in Dallas and can easily be in the convention center on The Day…of course, I will likely be working on the exhibit floor but I will definitely be dropping by the Pop Top Stage as often as possible. Other days will likely have even more author-like events. YAY!!!!

Check it out:
