YA Night of Awesome!
Last night, I went to the YA Night of Awesome at Children's Book World in Haverford. Rachel Cohn, David Levithan, Matt de la Pena, E. Lockhart, and Sarah Mlynowski all read from their new books, answered questions, and signed books. It was such a fun night! They all drove down from New York together for the event, so they were like a bunch of teenagers on a road trip. Random things I learned include that E. Lockhart also writes children's books under the name Emily Jenkins and that Matt de la Pena's book Ball Don't Lie is being made into a TV series. We have books by all of them in our teen secton, so check them out. (I got some of our library copies signed.) I definitely recommend going to events at Children's Book World...they get some amazing people in there!!
I also got some books signed for teen summer reading prizes next year:
Gingerbread by Rachel Cohn
Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan (2 copies)
