I just got home from an evening at the Francestown Library with the coolest and most adorable group of teenage girls ever. And I’m not just saying that because they live in my town. 😉 These lovely young ladies came out to help me kick off the month of June with a “Girls Night Out” in celebration of REUNITED‘s release date being a mere 10 days away! We all made collages (like the girls in REUNITED) which centered on friendship (a theme in REUNITED), I read an excerpt from the book and talked about the process of writing it, we ate a bunch of junk food, and I raffled away some major swag. Special thanks to Mary Farrell, our Children’s Librarian who organized the event, Meaghan Farrell, her daughter/the party’s social director, and Carol Brock, our Head Librarian, for supporting our shenanigans.
And don’t forget to check out their fabulous collages below. These gals can work a glue stick.
Just like you can’t look directly at the sun without going blind, the camera found it impossible to focus on this much awesomeness.
It’s Week 3 of the REUNITED Giveaway Extravaganza, which means there’s only 2 more weeks to go until REUNITED hits the shelves! Yippee!
Last week’s winner — Samantha C. – walked away with two pre-release copies of REUNITED – one for her and one for Alisha, her BFF.
And I had so much fun giving away those books that I’m doing it again! But this time, with a twist. To enter, just write the name of your favorite library in the comments section of this post— it can be your town library, or the one at your school — and you could win two copies of REUNITED – one for you, and one to donate to your library of choice! (Contest runs through Tuesday June 5, 2012 at 7:00amEST. Open to U.S. residents only.)
Of course, I’m making the librarians at my local library buy a copy. 😉 Thank you Mary and Carol!!!
My favorite library, in stick-figure form.
