(Technically, neither of these were strictly book signings, but still, the title was too catchy to pass up.)
On Wednesday, I went to the Teen Author Reading Night at the Jefferson Market branch of the NYPL. There were a ton of authors there! The actual event featured David Levithan, Rachel Cohn, Lena Roy, Barry Lyga, Scott Westerfeld, Sarah Beth Durst, Kieran Scott, and Lauren Henderson. Each read a little from their most recent or upcoming novels, and then there was a short Q&A session with the audience, which was a lot of fun. Please excuse the poor lighting in the photos, I tried to touch them up as best as I could.

In the audience, I spotted lots of other authors, including the most fabulous Melissa Walker, who I was so excited to meet, having absolutely loved her Violet books, Micol Ostow, and Coe Booth, among others.
Then on Thursday, I went to The Mockingbirds publication party at Books of Wonder, which was, surprise, surprise, a blast. This event was in reality more of a glorified book signing because there were snacks, such as these amazing cupcakes:
|Notice the gorgeous mockingbirds, straight from the cover of Daisy's book!|
Daisy is just such a cool person! She's gorgeous, fashionable, smart, and talented, and kept everyone thoroughly entertained.
|Daisy being charming|
|Me and Daisy Whitney|
And that is my tale of two (very fun) book signings.
