I’m excited to be going to the Lambda Literary Awards in New York on Monday!
Kate Clinton will host, and she’s awesome and hilarious. I’ll get to see a lot of friends, including David Levithan and Aaron Hartzler from the Openly Straight tour. They are nominated along with me in the children’s/young adult category.
You know that cliché, where people say, “It’s an honor just to be nominated”?
Well, in this case, it really is just an honor to be nominated. I do not expect that Openly Straight will win this year. The competition looks fierce. But I must say that I’m really looking forward to the event. It’s a celebration of LGBT literature, and I am so grateful to be part of that world in my own way.
I’ll try to post pictures! I say try, because I usually forget to take pictures.
