|Maggie Stiefvater engages the crowd|
Oblong Books in Rhinebeck has the fabulous Hudson Valley Young Adult Society which has outstanding monthly events. I was able to see one of my top favorite authors in person and have her sign all of my books. Maggie Stiefvater appeared at Oblong on Sunday, October 27, to a full house. She was great. Entertaining. Stood the entire time, involved the audience during her reading, made everyone feel welcome, made us laugh, and was generally a-w-e-s-o-m-e.
When it was time for signing, Maggie sat down and spoke to everyone who came up and engaged even the shyest person to speak. What a memorable afternoon! What an incredible author and person. Thanks to the HVYA Society, especially Suzanna Hermans and Jennifer Laughran. And thanks to Maggie Stiefvater for being so darn cool, insightful, hilarious, and well, inspirational.

Caitlin, and friend, Andrea, had the rest
of my collection signed.
