Literary Locale: An Evening with Sarah Dessen

Literary Locale is a meme here at A Bookish Affair on Fridays where I talk about where I've been reading lately or any other bookish locations that I feel like talking about. Feel free to grab the logo and play along!
So this week, I had a  chance to go see YA romance queen, Sarah Dessen, in D.C. at the main library downtown. I love the books of hers that I've read. They are just really fun reads, especially for summer. The day I saw her also happened to be the day that her latest book, The Moon and More, was released so she read a little bit from her book.

I love going to author events. It so cool to hear straight from the mind that created a book that really moved you. Luckily, we get a lot of authors who come through the D.C. area, which is good for me.

After Ms. Dessen spoke, she signed books. The line was long but what I really appreciated is that Sarah took the time to speak with everyone and take pictures with them. She is really just as sweet as she seems in real life, which is always nice to realize.  I bought a copy of The Moon and More and got a couple of other books signed.

It was a fantastic event and I fully suggest going to see Ms. Dessen if she comes anywhere close to you!

Where are you reading this week?


  1. What fun and I love that she took the time to talk and take pictures with everyone! Sounds like an awesome day!

  2. It is nice she took pictures with everyone. All the book signings I've gone to so far no one does pictures. It's like a hit and run photo!

  3. Ah, I LOVE Sarah Dessen. She really is such a sweetie. I'm reallllly hoping she comes back to Toronto this year. She was here the fall after her last book came out so I'm keeping my fingers crossed! :)

  4. How fun! I'd love to attend author events like that, but not too many come my way.

As of 6/6/2011, this book is now an awards free zone. While I appreciate the awards, I would rather stick to reviewing more great books for you than trying to fill the requirements.
