NYC Teen Author Festival, Books of Wonder Signing!


Had a great time at the Books of Wonder signing today. Husband and I took the bike so we were able to park right out front. I ran into Gayle Forman right inside and she introduced me to Elizabeth Scott, both lovely ladies. There were close to 70 authors signing today, and unfortunately I wasn't able to speak with all of them, but I did get to see Maggie Stiefvater, Elizabeth Eulberg, David Levithan, Aimee Friedman, and Libba Bray! And I also ran into Mitali from http://alleyofbooks.blogspot.com/!

Talked a bit with Maggie and her husband, also knows as "Lover", after her signing. Her suitcase almost rolled into our motorcycle. Great conversation starter. They were on their way to Bologna, Italy to the SCBWI book fair. Safe traveling, Maggie!

Gayle is just awesome. I can't say enough about how much I love her and her books--SISTERS IN SANITY, IF I STAY.

Some of you saw my tweets about the reading I went to Thursday morning, the one where the authors left ten minutes before I got there. I finally got to meet Elizabeth Eulberg and David Levithan, two of those authors, at the signing today! Elizabeth (THE LONELY HEARTS CLUB), owes me a cupcake for leaving on Thursday. She wanted to make good on that today, but I'm still full from my trip to Harold's Deli in Edison, NJ last night. She is one awesome chick. AND she is also Stephenie Meyer's publicist! Cool, right?

We ended up leaving a bit early and I didn't get to meet everyone, but there will be other signings. HUGE thanks to David Levithan who worked so hard setting up the Teen Author Festival! And Thanks to all the authors who participated!

Even though these pictures are horribad, I'm going to show them to you anyway.

Ohh the pics are awesome! You're super lucky to make it to such an incredible event. I wish I was closer than 2 hours to NYC! But we'll hopefully be there in the fall. ; ) Thanks for sharing!

That looks like so much fun! Was that my Shiver in Maggie's hands? So cool you got to go to that! See how positive I'm being instead of all whiny and jealous (like I am on the inside)!

Yes, that is your copy! I can't get to the PO today because Husband took the car, but I will ship it ASAP! And your signed Catching Fire too. They have so much signed stock in that bookstore. It is officially my favorite store. Even if they didn't have signed stock, they have a cupcake shop inside!
