First--a HUGE thank you to the V-Day supporters who came out this weekend to see our show! We packed the place both days and earned money for a great cause! THANK YOU! Keep your eyes open for local V-Girls events in the future.If nothing else, you HAVE TO go here and watch this really short movie. FREE BARBIE!
Second--Have you heard about the PAYA Auctions?
From their site:
PAYA is a coalition of Pennsylvania’s young adult authors, bloggers, librarians, readers, and other book-lovers. Our mission is two-fold:As a library trustee and an author this is all sorts of fantastic for me. :) I'll link you again next week when I have something up for auction. For now, check out some of the great things up for grabs this week! I DARE you to bid me up on those origami stars. I DARE YOU.
- To share the love we have for young adult literature with others in our state
- To raise money to support Pennsylvania’s libraries, with a focus on helping build Young Adult library collections and Young Adult services.
And Third--I wanted to show you this awesome cover for Jackie Morse Kessler's book, HUNGER, which is due out the same month as PLEASE IGNORE VERA DIETZ.
Isn't it pretty?
But better than the pretty cover, the book is awesome. I got a lucky read of it a few months back and loved it. So clever was this idea! HUNGER is about an anorexic girl who becomes the new Famine, of the four horsemen of the apocalypse. Sounds interesting, doesn't it? I assure you, it is amazing.
