Upcoming Local Author Events

Hey local bloggers and book loving friends!

I just thought I'd give a shout out to a couple of events happening in the area this week that you may want to know about and hopefully come to.

First, tomorrow is the release of the last Wheel of Time book, A Memory of  Light! Wahoo! What a ride that's been for a few people! So there's a midnight release party happening at the BYU bookstore (and people are camping out and everything!) However, the part I'm planning on going to is the Q and A session with Brandon Sanderson and Harriet, Robert Jordan's wife. That's going to be at Provo High  School at 8:00 p.m. tomorrow night.  Even though I haven't finished the series, and have no plans to buy this last book quite yet, I think it will be a blast to hear these two talk and answer questions about the journey of this series. Very cool.

And then, on Thursday evening January 10, at 7:00 p.m. at the Orem Library, there will be YA/MG panel happening to kick off the second annual Orem Writes series! Sweet! The authors participating this time are:

Ally Condie (Matched series)
Robison Wells (Variant and Feedback)
Jennifer A. Nielsen (The False Prince and the upcoming The Runaway King)
E.J. Patten (Return to Exile)

Of course I'll be to this one too!

And so, let the bookish/author events of 2013 begin! I'm so excited!


  1. So this is really the last Wheel of Time book? I read about five of them and was waiting for the next one and then lost the thread of the story and haven't read them for years and decided to wait until the series was really done.

  2. Well, I think you know I've no real desire to go see my favorite author. ;-) I will try to make it to the event on Thursday. Wahoo! It's been awhile.

    1. Jenny: GAH! and here I thought you'd be dying to go with me tomorrow! I guess I'll just have to drag my husband along instead.... :)

  3. Thanks for posting about these. I don't think I'll be able to make it to either of them, but at least now I know about them and can try to plan accordingly!

  4. I'm so happy you posted these! Tonight it's my turn to plan date night and my husband loves The Wheel of Time, so I know what we will be doing!

  5. Oh Orem writes sounds fun. Hmm I wonder if I can swing it, ugg so many things to do.
