What are you doing tonight? Say, from 6-8 pm or so, before your fashionable Thursday night on the town or, for those of the younger persuasion, bedtime? May I suggest a couple hours of listening to seven (count ’em, seven!) awesome fantasy authors reading from their books of awesome fantasy at one of the most awesome independent bookstores in the city?
I thought you’d like that. Conveniently enough, the magnificent Books of Wonder will be hosting Libba Bray, Rachel Cohn, Cinda Williams Chima, Dan Krokos, Gina D’Amico, Sarah Crossan, and myself for readings from (respectively) The Diviners, Beta, The Crimson Crown, False Memory, Scorch, Breathe, and The Broken Lands. And while I won’t be reading from The Kairos Mechanism tonight, you can pick up a copy of the paperback/ebook bundle if you swing by during the event (thank you, Books of Wonder!).
While I have your attention, do you know that Books of Wonder needs some help right now? If you’ve poked around on my website much, you probably know I feel really strongly about independent bookstores to begin with, and Books of Wonder is a special case. They’re running an Indiegogo campaign right now to raise the $100,000 they need to stay open. With 28 days to go they’re nearly 1/3 of the way there, which is great, but they still have a long way to go. Check out the store if you never have. If you’re in the NYC, why not check it out in person? Say, tonight? Then if you have cash to spare, help out here.
Hope to see you tonight!
