Event Recap: This is Teen Tour Visits Boston

Last night I attended one of the best author events ever…it was the Boston leg of Scholastic’s This is Teen tour that featured Maggie Stiefvater, Meg Cabot and Libba Bray. I’ve been to events with all three of these authors before but this is the first time all together…and let me tell you…together they are hysterical.
The event began with each author giving a small little presentation about their book as well as several little tidbits on events that influenced them as teens. Meg Cabot blames her parents and Algebra for eventually ending up as a writer. Maggie Stievater was partially raised by feral librarians and we learned why Libba Bray should not be allowed near swimming pools when she’s trying to impressive the cute boys. There was also a rousing game of mad libs which included references to the TARDIS and Neil Gaiman
These ladies are all so funny that simply transcribing it just won’t do it justice so please take a few moments to watch the youtube videos below.

    I love Meg Cabot and wish I had known about this event. I can’t wait to see the videos when I have access to a media friendly computer.
