Awesome Author After-Action

March 14-17 was one of the more ambitious weekends for us, and looking back it couldn’t have gone much better!


David Levithan and Rainbow Rowell packed our place to overflowing Friday night. We knew they’d bring in the crowd, but we never anticipated so many. We had to have our reading out in the back parking lot, there were so many!

Saturday, we had Mike Mullin and some of his friends over to promote the end of the Ashfall trilogy. They demonstrated some of the skills featured heavily in the series and answered questions. Volunteers among the visitors got to take home boards broken by the demonstrators, including Mike himself!

Shannon Hale closed out our monster weekend with a bit of a push herself – a breakneck tour of schools followed by a signing at our store. Like so many authors, she was happy to take pictures with her fans, especially those interested in making them memorable.

We just want to thank everyone ever. Thank you authors that helped make this weekend one of the most exciting we’ve ever hosted. Thank you to everyone working at the store who kept things running and happy. And a special thank you to everyone that showed up and gave us all so much energy – our store may trade in books, but it’s our customers that keep us going. Thank you.
