The grandma did confer w/the original poster about the dates. The op was confused and didn't realize that they conflicted. She has stated that grandma would probably have been flexible about the dates if she had been informed. For me that is where the conflict lies. The OP at least tacitly approved those dates and several people went to some amount of trouble to plan a trip around those dates. If I was the grandma it wouldn't really feel like a family trip without my grandson. On the other hand it seems unfair to make her son miss his book release because his mom flaked on the dates. I don't know what the op should do, but it seems unavoidable that someone will justifiably feel hurt no matter what.
