Reasons You Should Attend the #NCTE13 #NerdUp

In less than three weeks, thousands of English teachers and authors will arrive in Boston for the annual convention of the National Council for Teachers of English. Among that number will be the large tribe that has come to identify themselves as Nerdy Book Club members.
This presents an opportunity too hugely awesome to pass up: the chance for Nerdy Book Club members to meet face to face.
Last year we hosted a party for those who posted, but planning for such an event this year seemed too limiting.
The result? We’ll be holding an informal meet-up (a #NerdUp!) on Friday night at the Sidebar and Grill at the Sheraton Boston from 8-12 and we’d love for you to join us!

We could think of a thousand reasons why you would join us, but we thought it would be more fun to see the reasons you might have to offer. Leave them in the comments below.
