MATCHED Release Party at Kings English

07 Dec, 2010 by in matched 3 comments

Once again The King’s English bookstore hosted an amazing release party on Saturday, this time for for Ally Condie’s new dystopian YA book, MATCHED. Currently it is the #1 pick on the Indie Next List.

MATCHED is a trilogy with the second book CROSSED to be released November 1, 2011. The inspiration for her book came from time spent as a High School English teacher chaperoning proms as well as her experience as a sorority mother in Ithaca, New York.
