SPRING INTO THE FUTURE EVENT
Tahereh Mafi, Veronica Rossi, Cynthia Hand & Kimberly Derting
May 5th 2012
UW Bookstore in Millcreek
I took a lot of pictures while at the event, I did have a few more, but these were the best ones.

This event was so awesome, I loved meeting Tahereh and Veronica for the first time and seeing Cynthia and Kimberly again. The energy of the event was so much fun and very entertaining.
Talking about their books

Cynthia Hand & Tahereh Mafi
The Q&A session
I didn't even try to remember the questions and answers, that would be way too hard with this many authors. There was lots of good questions asked that all of the girls each answered.
My seat has all the extra crap under it. I got there 45 minutes early to get that seat. Guess who also was there, Daniel Marks debut author of Velveteen, can you see him?

Getting all prepared for the signing part. Each had some swag to giveaway.

This may seem really random, but this is Tahereh's purse. I saw it when she made her appearance and I just loved it. At the end of the signing I just had to ask her if I could take a picture of it. Too freaking cute!
All the cool swag we got
Bookmarks for Rossi and Hand (I forgot to add Derting's bookmarks because I got it last week and didn't pick up any this week), a poster signed by all the girls and Tahereh's friend made a specialized necklace for the event.
The books I got signed at the event, all have been personalized
I really loved this event and I hope I will see all of them again when their next books comes out. They were all so sweet and amazing. I will always recommend all of these girls books to everyone that will read them.
Did you get to meet them at one of their tour stops?
