Five Best Things about #SIBA10

I just wanted to tell you that I had a lovely time at SIBA 2010.  
As a faculty member at University of  entral Florida, I attended 
SIBA this year to meet people and find authors for our annual 
UCF Orlando  ook Festival, April 16, 2011. I did meet a lot of 
authors and book sellers, but the highlight of my
conference was just being around "book-ish" people! 
I loved the stimulating conversation around books.
The authors' passion for their subjects and the writing 
process was contagious. 

I applaud the organizers of SIBA. The panels, followed by 
book signings seemed to flow nicely throughout  he day. 
The meals were engaging and the generous time in-between 
events encouraged us to get together and talk. 

From my perspective as a professor it was a wonderful weekend 
and one that I hope to enjoy again next year!

Five best things about SIBA 2010:
5. Location (Daytona Beach was spectacular!)
4. Food (breakfast, lunch, and dinner were scrumptious!)
3. Free books! Woo hoo!
2. Seeing old friends and making new ones
1. Conversations around books with "book-ies!"

    Dear Susan,

    It was indeed a pleasure talking with you and Dr. Williams at the recent SIBA Convention in Daytona Beach! I could tell immediately that both of you were really enjoying the convention.

    I will be in touch with you about author events at UCF.

    Best regards,
