This event celebrates the wide range of writing in Young Adult literature. From first-time authors to those with several books on the shelves; from those who taught themselves to write (like me) to those who have graduate degrees in writing; from 5 different countries; both women and men writers; and including every genre of YA, both traditionally and self-published. Everything you ever wanted to know about YA all in one place. The awesomeness will be overwhelming.

There will be Q&As, prize giveaways, games, snacks, and a signing. Win books, bookmarks and swag.

There will be books for purchase at the event, but if you’re worried there won’t be enough of your favorite authors’ books, you can also pre-order any titles you’d like from W.H. Smith Paris. (Let them know it’s for this event.)

You are also allowed to bring 1 book per author from your own collection for authors to sign.

You do not have to have a membership to come. For this event the Library is suggesting a donation of 10€ (5€ for students) to help fund programs. If you plan on buying a book, the donation can be waived (unless you wish to help out the Library).

If you think you’re attending, let us know on the event’s Facebook page!

And if you have any questions, feel free to ask me in the comments below. We can’t wait to see you!

Blast from the Past

I was just going through my computer sorting through things to clear up disk space and found this old article that I wrote for French Property News way before I was writing fiction as Amy Plum. It’s on how to start and English-language book club in France. Hope you enjoy!
