Teen author event at Antigone Books

Friday, September 24, at 7 p.m. I’ll be reading and signing alongside fabulous teen authors Jillian Cantor and Adam Rex at Antigone Books.

Don’t live anywhere near Tucson but want a signed copy of one of our books? Here’s something really cool: Antigone has agreed to ship personalized copies! Just email info@antigonebooks.com with your name, address, which book you’d like, and who you’d like it signed to, and they’ll get in touch to work out the details. Note: Signed copies must be ordered through the email address, not the web site.

Here’s more info on the event:

Join us for a fabulous event for teens, aspiring writers, teachers and librarians with three local authors: Jillian Cantor, Adam Rex and Janni Lee Simner.

Janni Lee Simner will read from Thief Eyes (Random House, $16.99). In this intense new fantasy, 16-year-old Haley accompanies her geologist father to Iceland, where she’s determined to discover exactly what happened the previous year when her mother disappeared.

Adam Rex will read from Fat Vampire (Harper, $16.99). In this delightfully macabre spoof on the current vampire craze, Doug Lee is a 15 year-old overweight vampire and will be for eternity.

Jillian Cantor will read from The Life of Glass (Harper, $16.99). High-school freshman Melissa’s beloved father has recently died of cancer, leaving her struggling to find her way and learning how to come to terms with her grief without giving up her memories of him.

The reading will be followed by a question and answer period. Refreshments will be served.

Hope to see some of you there!
