I will be in Washington D.C. this weekend to give a paper on paratexts of manga in the United States at the Sixth International Conference on the Book.
I am scheduled to talk on Saturday (tomorrow!) at 12:05 at the Edward J. Pryzbyla University Center, Room 323A (Catholic University of America).
It's safe to assume that I'm not going to see anyone I know there, so I'm going to be woefully short on moral support. Anyway, wish me luck (and a sympathetic audience)!
