Portland Events this weekend + Oregon Spirit Book Award

In the "It never rains but it pours" category (sidenote: true in Kansas, not true in Oregon) I have two local events this weekend. 

Come find me at:

  • Friday 10th, 7pm - Barnes & Noble at Bridgeport in Tigard, OR. I'll be there as part of the national Teen B-Fest with fellow authors Jason Gurley and Daniel Wilson. We'll be doing a trivia game and handing out prizes, so stop in!

  • Saturday 11th, 1:30-3 - Another Read Through bookstore in Portland, OR. I'm doing a Young Adult Panel with Kate Ristau, Ali Berman, and Suzy Vitello - we'll read from our books and do some Q&A. There may be cake. Come on by!

ADDITIONALLY: I'm delighted to say that Seriously Wicked received an Oregon Spirit Book Honor Award in the YA category! The book and I get to go to a luncheon this fall with fellow Honoree Teri Brown and Winner Fonda Lee. The book is given by Oregon teachers and librarians to a "distinguished contribution to children’s literature or young adult literature that engages and encourages readers’ imagination, discovery, and understanding, reflecting the spirit and values held by Oregonians." Which makes me super happy.
