Teen Read Week

Next week is Teen Read Week and me and Scott will be doing a bunch of readings and signings around the traps.

First up, the very day after we get back from Mexico, so expect us to be full of Mexican cheer (I plan to wear my Mexican cowboy hat and may do the entire reading in Spanish):

Sunday 16 October, 6:00PM
Justine Larbalestier
Bennett Madison
Scott Westerfeld
Barbès Reading Series
376 Ninth Street (at 6th Ave.)
Barbès Bar
Park Slope, Brooklyn
New York

I’ll be reading from Magic Lessons the sequel to Magic or Madness in a way that gives absolutely nothing away if you haven’t read the first book. I’ll also read a wee bit from a brand-new novel I’ve been working on. Scott will read from Peeps in his authentic Texan accent.

Monday 17 October
New Atlantic Independent Bookseller Association Trade Show
The Tropicana Resort & Casino
Brighton & The Boardwalk
Atlantic City
2:30-3:00: Scott signs 75 copies of Peeps in the author autographing area table #3.
They’ll also be giving away copies of Magic or Madness at the Penguin booth #204. Yay! Free books! I plan to snaffle up many (though not my own book, obviously).

Tuesday 18 October, 5:30-7:30PM
Scott reads at Books of Wonder
18 West 18th St
New York

Wednesday 19 October, 7:00–8:30 p.m.
Author Event:
Meet Scott Westerfeld and Justine Larbalestier
Elizabeth Main Library
11 S. Broad St., Elizabeth

So, it’s quite the busy week for us. Hope we get to see some of you.

    i just read ‘so yesterday’, and it’s terrific! that guy scott knows just about everything, doesn’t he? and i was cheered to find out that (at 37) I still can’t read kissing scenes.
    i avert my eyes when people kiss on teevee, too. ha. on to ‘uglies’…

    Hope you have a safe trip home…sorry that we couldn’t prepare better, more welcoming, weather for you. Maybe you can bring some Mexican sunshine back for us!

    Libba’s going to be at NAIBA too, though I’m not quite sure of her schedule. She’d love to see a friendly face or two, as she’s going to be a nervous wreck. I keep telling her that speaking before Phillip Roth isn’t so hard…speaking after, now, that would be tough.

    yay! glad you’re back in the land of lack of flowers and hummingbirds, selfish as that sentiment is. my blogroll was awfully pale last month. i had to add all the trendy blogs like boingboing and … uh … okay, i wasn’t really reading other blogs.
