I have two more author events to report about.. .both of them at the "other" (Provo) library! The first one included two author appearances as part of the Teen Book Festival.... Susan Beth Pfeffer and Jonathan Mayberry. Everyone (well some anyway) was dressed up as zombies. It was awesome! Both authors had a turn to speak, then they answered questions panel style, then we could get books signed.
|Here's Gene, director of the library, in his zombie get up.|
Courtney, who puts on these awesome programs, has her back to us here.
|This is what was sitting right in front of me and what I was privileged to look at the whole time!|
|Getting our book signed.|
|Getting our book signed.|
I told him maybe his book would be the one to once and for all make
me understand the whole zombie thing. He is certain it will.
Then the next week was another event called Angel's Night Out. It was quite the shindig! (We even had to pay a little bit for this one!) It was a party to celebrate the launch of Finale, the last of the Hush Hush series by Becca Fitzpatrick. Everyone dressed up in formal attire (well some) and mingled for a bit while being served mock-tails and hors d’oeuvre by angel boys (local college/high school boys dressed in black with angel wings.) Then the authors joined us!
|Becca Fitzpatrick ..... along with|
Kresley Cole, Tonya Hurley, and Elizabeth Miles.
(I have no idea which name goes to which author, except Becca on the far left.)
|This is what was in front of me this time!|
|Ah, and the star of the show was not the author, but the cover model for Patch!|
Everyone that wished to could have their picture taken with him.
We got a good giggle out of that.
Did we have our picture taken? Nope.
|Here's a better picture of Patch/Drew snagged off the internet because,|
I just thought you deserved it!
|Also that night Emily (from Emily's Reading Room) presented Courtney with a little picture of the library,|
signed by all the local bloggers (and others probably) because sadly, Courtney, the one who has made all
these author events happen, has moved and left us!
I went to both events with Jenny from Alternate Readality (these events wouldn't be near as fun without a buddy to go with!) We saw Kami (Kami's Library Thoughts) at the first one (and I can't remember who else) and Emily and Diana (from Book Adventures) at the second one. The blogger attendance was meager this time!
And here's a fun video for you that they showed us at the first event... a zombie music video done by the son of the library director. Watch!
You may be wondering... are the recent deluge of author events over yet? If so, I would tell you... NOPE!
