The RWA conference is coming up kiddies, and you know what that means - the Librarian's Day Event. Cathie Linz always does a nice job putting this day together, and the last time I attended (Reno in 2005) the free goodies were choice. If you're a librarian, and in the area, I do recommend it. It's a nice day, and the huge-ass book signing follows afterwards - so it makes for a full, rich (and tiring) day, but it's oodles of fun.
Nora Roberts is this year's luncheon speaker. Correct me if I'm wrong here - but she's done the librarian's day for several years running now. I always get a kick out of seeing Nora at RWA (although I'm too much of a goober to actually talk to her). I always come back to work afterwards and tell everybody in a hushed whisper, "Nora Roberts was there! Yes, she's a real person and not a cyborg!" When you're that prolific, we librarians wonder. I have a theory that James Patterson has a writing sweat shop in Guatemala - but that's another blog post entirely.
So imagine my heady giddiness when Nora responded to this post. One, two, three - squeeeee! And she needs our help? If you're a librarian (or just wish you were) what would you like to hear Nora talk about at the Librarian's Day Event? Besides her top secret plans to take over the world of course.
Side note: I think I'd like to hear Nora talk about all her years in the business. Her first book was released in 1981, and her back list is humongous. I mean, she's seen trends come and go, "ideas" from the powers-that-be come and go, and romance evolve. Or has it really? I'd love to hear her take on this. Has the industry really changed? Or do "we" just think it has?
