Upcoming Cactus-related events

I am about to head down to Southern California for more readings (and I’m bringing a newly purchased “wicked salamander” rubber stamp just for the occasion.)

Here is the list.

ALA Convention

1:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.

Authors include Kaya McLaren (Church of the Dog, Penguin), Scott Douglas (Quiet, Please, Perseus Books), Mark Sarvas (Harry, Revised, Bloomsbury USA), Janelle Brown (All We Ever Wanted Was Everything, Spiegel & Grau), and Anya Ulinich (Petropolis, Penguin). Then I will sign and stamp books at the HarperPerennial booth from 4 to 5. At the convention, you will have many book-stamping options: rainbow-colored ticks, Opuntia cactus, yucca, range cow skull, coiled rattlesnake and, at long last, salamander.
