Three fun things to share:

I had an amazing experience at Models of Pride on the USC campus in Los Angeles last weekend, sharing my "Discover LGBTQ History" presentation. What a smart and engaged audience of young LGBTQ and allied people! For more on my presentations, visit my speaker-visit website at smashingstereotypes.org

And I'm excited that I'll be presenting at the upcoming KidLitCon13 in Austin, Texas on November 9.  It's the annual conference of bloggers who focus on kid's and teen literature, and I'll be giving this talk, "Diversity In Kid Lit: Nurture More, Blog More, Get More" and I'll be on the panel, Kidlit Blogging Roundtable: Our Past, Present, and Future.  More info here: http://bit.ly/1diFrY0
