If you’ll be attending the Texas Library Association conference this week, I’ll be easy to spot, if you’re so inclined. I’ll be the guy in the T-shirt approximating the shade of daylight-fluorescent green used in The Day-Glo Brothers.

What’s in it for you? Well, I’ll show you my last remaining advance copy of my book. (Just try and stop me.)

What else? How about a sneak preview of SVT, the picture book that Tom Lichtenheld and I have coming out next year from Little, Brown?

Want more? Fine. I’ll even let you in on the closely held secret of what “SVT” stands for, an entire week or two before it gets spilled here on Bartography.

I hope we have a deal, and that I’ll see you there.
