“Poetry often gets a bad rap. Boring, archaic, irrelevant. These three writers—from newbie to icon of the form—will set the record straight. Verse novels are intimate, hard-hitting, and transformative. Come for a reading, stay for a conversation about craft and book signing.” Learn more about Teenquake and Litquake here. Books Inc. and Not Your Mother’s Book Club are honored to co-present such an exciting event/program!
Shout out to @ravenousreader for taking this great photo of Nicola Yoon and David Levithan. Friday night's event was Everything, Everything we could have wanted. The author's clicked, had wonderful and insightful questions for each other and the #nymbc crowd was just as curious. Thank you to Nicola and David for coming all the way from NYC and L.A., we hope to have you back Another Day, and thank you for all the booklovers who came out to support! We couldn't do it without you! #seewhatididthere #literaryhumoristhebesthumor
Don't miss this event!! Mark it on your brand-new, shinny calendar... or the old one you're ready to replace.
Friday, Sept. 11th, 7pm at Books Inc. Opera Plaza.
If you haven't heard already, YA author Patrick Ness reached out to his readers and writing community on twitter yesterday to raise money for the refugees flooding into Europe. Ness tweeted that he would match up to £10,000. Within hours, big name authors like John Green, Jojo Moyes, Rosamund Lupton and many others promised to match the following £10K. With the help of the writing community and the support of countless every-day people, Ness's outreach has raised almost £200K and is still growing. For us Americans, that's 303,804 dollars. That's amazingly crazy! Follow the action on twitter. If you'd like to donate to the cause, here's the link to Ness's fundraising page on Virgin Money Giving.
Books Inc. is very excited and honored to be hosting Patrick Ness October 8, 2015.
