Upcoming Author Events – UK/Ireland
Spring seems to have brought with it a whole host of authors here for their tours. Of the many that are making the rounds, I thought I’d highlight the brilliant Michael Grant and Rachel Caine!
Michael Grant is the author of the Gone series and co-creator of the Animorphs and Everworld series. Those latter two series absolutely ruled my childhood/early teens – I even wrote a long love-letter-esque post to the Everworld series on the blog. When I heard he would be in the UK I could not contain my excitement!! He will be here next week – take a look at his schedule and see if you can make any of the events!
- Wednesday 24 April 6.30pm – Waterstones Piccadilly: In conversation with journalist Lucy Mangan
- Saturday 27 April 4pm- 5pm – Signing at Muswell Hill bookshop [I am going to try to make this one! Send me a tweet if you’ll be there!]
- Monday 29 April 6.30 to 7.30pm – Talk at Waterstones Plymouth
- Thursday 2 May 6pm – Talk and Q & A at Eason O’Connell, Dublin
- Friday 3 May 4pm – Public signing at Eason Dundrum, Dublin
Rachel Caine (who I’m a huge fan of, in case the zillion reviews of her books I’ve posted hasn’t given me away) will also be coming! She’s got a lot of events scheduled, but the one I really want to highlight is the Foyles event – which OMG AMAZING. Why? Well, she’ll be in conversation with Sarah Rees Brennan, that’s why! It breaks my blooming heart that I won’t be able to make it, but I strongly urge you all to go!
Tuesday 14 May 2013 6:30pm – 7:30pm
Venue: the Gallery at Foyles, 113 – 119 Charing Cross Road, London WC2H 0JG
The adventures of Claire Danvers, a teenage girl who finds herself fighting for her life in the vampire-infested town of Morganville, Texas, are known and loved by young readers around the world. In fact, the first of Rachel Caine’s Morganville novels was recently voted number one in a national poll of children’s favourite books. Fresh from publishing Fall of Night, the 14th (and, we’re sad to say, penultimate) in the series, the teen horror sensation joins us for a special London event, to give her fans a glimpse behind the scenes of these wildly popular novels.
Rachel will be in conversation with Sarah Rees Brennan, author of the bestselling Demon’s Lexicon trilogy.
Tickets: £3, redeemable against cover price of Fall of Night on the evening.
