Madam Mayo @ Book Expo America

Book Expo America is in Washington DC this week. Just thinking about this monster mash makes Madam Mayo reach for the Advil. But her publishers will be here working hard for Mexico: A Traveler's Literary Companion, Sky Over El Nido, and El Cielo de El Nido. It's also a chance to say hello to many friends who are coming to sign their books-- among them travel writer L. Peat O'Neil, in from Mexico City. Madam Mayo herself will be signing El Cielo de El Nido (Mexican poet Agustin Cadena's translation of her stories) at the Planeta Publishing booth Saturday May 20th at 10:30 am. Plus there's a litbloggers jamboree hosted by The Happy Booker and the LitBlog Coop.(And speaking of litbloggers, what does Miss Snark the stilleto-heeled blogging literary agent have to say about BEA?
