Books: The Cheapest Vacation You Can Buy

{November 14, 2015}   {UtopiaCon 2016} Thanksgiving Week Facebook Party, Exclusive Hoodies, and Ticket Sales

It’s the weekend!  I’m looking forward to finally relaxing a bit after the craziness that has been my life.  And guess what?  It’s almost Thanksgiving!  And UTOPiAcon is getting set to give you a week-long party to celebrate!!!

Utopia 2016 Fight For Your Right

Thanksgiving week, Janet Wallace and the official bloggers will be running an awesome Utopia Facebook party, giving away awesome goodies like tickets, books, signing space, table space, and more!!!  Make sure you’re a part of the event by joining on Facebook HERE!

And, if you’re in the mood to donate any goodies for this Thanksgiving party, click HERE!

I’m heading to NCTE this coming week in Minneapolis, and if all goes as planned, I’ll have a SIGNED COPY of The Giver, by Lois Lowry, that I’m donating to the Facebook party to give away.  Don’t miss it!!

And of course, it’s November, so that means a new UtopiaCon Tee exclusive is for sale!!

Check out this beauty below–I scooped up the grey hoodie the moment I saw it!

Can’t wait to wear it around this winter!

November tees

This months design is just epic, and it comes not only in hoodie form for the holidays, but also as a racerback tank top, short sleeve tee, short sleeve v-neck tee, unisex fitted tee, and female fitted tee.  So many choices!!! Most come in white or grey, but a few come in black as well.  Happy shopping!

The idea behind the design stems from “Whit & Ware and Indie-Visible, [who] have teamed up to create a series of eleven limited edition T-shirts (one per month) honoring the amazing Janet Wallace, and her incredible gift to us all….the place we all call home once a year – Utopia!” But after November 20, this particular design will disappear forever, so act fast!!

Are you coming to UTOPIA in June?
