|Have pink suitcase and Starbucks, will travel.|
I arrived in Kansas City on Saturday, just after a huge storm hit the city. It made for very scenic views from the hotel room, though!
|The awesome view from the hotel. Union Station!|
I had some free time before meeting some booksellers for dinner, so I decided to explore KC. I went straight for the Sea Life Aquarium.
|And adorable rays that make friends with me!|
Sunday morning ABA kicked off with a fantastic talk from Malcolm Gladwell:
|Talking about success, failure, and geek girl basketball teams.|
|Lookit all those ARCs O_O|
|Setting up for the Author Reception|
I also had a chance to go the art museum in KC, and they had an exhibit on Chinese and Japanese ink wash painting, which inspired INK and The Paper Gods.
|The biggest ink and wash painting I've ever seen. Twice this length!|
|Totally related to INK. I promise.|
And this looks like it could be Tomo's desk from INK!
I had a great time in ABA and met some wonderful people. And got some fantastic ARCs in the process! Heads up - I will be doing a giveaway at some point with some of these ARCs, possibly including an INK ARC, so stay tuned! ;D
Thanks for going on my photo tour. If you went to ABA WI8, hope you had a fantastic time too! And if not, hope you had a glimpse into my adventures and shenanigans this weekend!
See you next time!
