A Day at the ITEM Fall Conference

Ryan Jacobson at the ITEM Fall ConferenceSome of my favorite author events are those in which I get to spend time with other authors. Last Friday was just such a day: I was an invited guest at the Information and Technology Educators of Minnesota (ITEM) Fall Conference, along with a dozen or so other authors and illustrators.

The annual event attracts media specialists from schools across the state, so it was a chance to promote a few of my books and—more importantly—to shamelessly plug my services as a guest author.

All in all, it was a great day. I saw some old friends and made a couple of new ones. Plus, I garnered interest from several schools that are considering an author visit. It’s shaping up to be a busy year!
