A big, linked list of #authors at #alamw13: Who shall I see?

[This post originally appeared at The Beekeeping Librarian blog]

Before I delve into eating Seattle whole (with my eating/travel in Seattle ALA blog, COMING SOON!), let me offer to all of
those who know me personally that the following authors will be at ALA
Midwinter in Seattle later this month… and so will I. If you are dying for a signed copy of a book by any of these
authors, let me know and I will do my best to get one for you.

For those of you who don’t know me personally, enjoy this linked up list. Author names link to their webpage and their twitter name is included if I could find one–plus a list of a few or all of their books. Adult and YA authors are listed first, then children’s authors, then illustrators/artists (some are listed multiple time if that applies). The big names are starred. The authors I plan to see (so far) are in bold.
