Katherine Applegate and Author Events

Do you attend author events at your local bookstore? It is such a treat when a local bookstore hosts an author that you greatly admire. It's also a treat when you attend a book event and discover something new. These events not only feed your love of reading, but also support authors and bookstores --- both we need!

Authors are very appreciative of smiling faces in the audience!

I drove to Saratoga Springs, New York to a terrific event hosted by a fave indie bookstore -- Northshire Bookstore. The guest was the wonderful, award-winning Katherine Applegate.

Have you read THE ONE AND ONLY IVAN? Or perhaps CRENSHAW? Or WISHTREE? There are too many terrific books of hers to name, but most likely you have enjoyed one of her titles. Lucky for all of us, another book just released -- ENDLING: The Last. This one sounds amazing and has to do with endangered species in an imaginary world. I can't wait to read my copy!

Author, Steve Sheinkin interviewed Katherine about writing, inspiration, developing worlds, and this new title.  What a treat for the readers, librarians, teachers, and authors in the audience!

That's me on the right with Katherine's latest - ENDLING! 

You can hear Katherine talk about her books at these upcoming events. I hope one is near you!
