I'm in New York City for Book Expo America, BEA, the publishing trade show. I flew in yesterday, and I'm staying at the Hotel Yotel. It's a cute boutique hotel. You check in with a touch screen in the hotel, feed it the credit card. The rooms are small, as so many rooms in NYC are, but my room is as cute as can be. But, they call them cabins, because they're very compact, as a ship cabin.
The bed is compact, so there's room to walk around, but you press a button, and it extends to full length.
The rooms have signs that look like cabin numbers. (This is NOT my room number. - smile)
And, my favorite part is actually the sign to hang on the door when you're ready for cleaning. Love this!
So, I arrived at the hotel about 6, took a few pictures, and then took off for Broadway. My hotel is within walking distance, which is where I like to be. I went to see The Trip to Bountiful last night with Cicely Tyson, Cuba Gooding, Jr., Vanessa Williams, Tom Wopat and Condola Rashad. Terrific cast, and a terrific play. Everyone was good, but Cicely Tyson owned that stage.
I don't know how much I'll have time to write this week. Full day tomorrow, and I'm catching up with librarian friends from Florida who I haven't seen in 9 years. If there's nothing here on Thursday, I promise I'll catch you up soon!
