It seems like only last month I was writing one of these event posts. ;)
When this stop was first announced, someone made the joke that HarperCollins send the author to BC just for me. Very funny. ;) It's rather well-known on Twitter that I adored Tahereh Mafi's debut novel Shatter Me, so when I heard she'd be coming to BC, I was thrilled. :)
The usual band of BC book bloggers got together (Caitlin, Jenny, me, Mariam, no Alita this time around, and we added Natalie and Mariam's sister and friend) and hovered around the table Tahereh sat at. It was super informal this time around, no chairs, just a quick talk and sign. Which was nice. Tahereh can be such a sweetheart. And she's so cute. :)
Afterwards, we totally kidnapped/walked with Tahereh (and her friend who was there with her taking pictures) and had frozen yogurt and talked about books and writing and stuff. I totally plugged Leah Bobet's Above to her. ;)
This event was the least formal I've been to, as well as the smallest, but it was still loads of fun. :) Keep an eye out for Tahereh Mafi this summer at both ALA and ComicCon, and there might be another event post in April (possibly).
And, because it's been a while, go here for something fun. :)
