Yesterday, I went to a talk, Q and A and signing with Rainbow Rowell at Waterstones Piccadilly in London. It was the first author event I’ve been to actually and I had a great time. I went with my writer and bookseller bestie George Lester, you can follow his blog HERE. This is us in the queue, we are a tad excited:
Rainbow was really engaging talking about her books, her writing process and things she loves like Sherlock (good taste!) and I love how she connects with her readers. If you haven’t read one of her books, you really should :) Eleanor and Park is my favourite and is a lovely teen romance that isn’t afraid to deal with all kinds of issues.
What I like about her is all her books are so different, she writes for teens and adults and it’s hard to define her work, which makes it more unique and fun I think. You never know what she’ll bring out next.
After the talk and questions, we lined up to have our books signed and I had three of her books with me. They were also giving out pretty amazing tote bags, just look!!
Here are my signed books:
And meeting the lovely lady herself (my smile is very cheesy!):
