Becca Fitzpatrick Provo Library Event

13 Oct, 2011 by in Heather Gardner Photography, michelle hodkin, provo city library, simon schuster 4 comments

Tuesday I got to see four amazing YA authors as part of a Provo Library event. Moira Young, author of Blood Red Road, Becca Fitzpatrick, author of Silence, Michelle Hodkin, author of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer and Elana Johnson, author of Possession. All four answered questions from the audience, over 150 fans in attendance. Becca Fitzpatrick unveiled a new Silence poster featuring Patch and Nora and assured us book four will be in fact the end of the series. Her inspiration for becoming a YA writer came from the book “Speak ” by Laurie Halse Anderson. Becca’s other favorite writers include Ally Condie, Kristin Cashore and Kiersten White. Elana Jonson announced that Possession will be a three part series, with two more books being written in differing points of view than the first. All of the authors were incredibly personable and kind in the Utah Book Blogger after party. While signing my advanced reading copy of Mara Dyer, Michelle Hodkin told me the ARC is in fact different from the finished copy. There is one word missing from the ARC that may make the sequel hard to understand as well as missing paragraphs. She made me oh so curious… Here are some of my photos from the event.

Kiersten White will read and sign Supernaturally, the second volume in her debut trilogy for young adult readers.

In Supernaturally, a lot has changed in the six months since Evie escaped from the International Paranormal Containment Agency with her shape-shifter boyfriend, Lend. Evie’s not-so-normal past keeps creeping up on her and things get pretty complicated…

Kiersten White is the New York Times bestselling author of Paranormalcy. Born and raised in Utah, White graduated from BYU. She has one tall husband and two small children and lives near the ocean, where her life is perfectly normal. This abundance of normal led her to a fascination with all things paranormal, including but not limited to vampires, faeries, and pop culture.

Hope to see you there!
