Author Event: Maggie Stiefvater
The event was held at Chapters Oshawa. By the time we got there, everything was set up and there was already a handful of people there. Maggie had already dropped off the sharpie'd guitar that was to be given away at one of her Canadian stops. Doesn't it look awesome? (I unfortunately did not win. Mega bummer.)
Tessa Gratton, author of Blood Magic and Maggie's critique partner, and asked her to sign our copies of Blood Magic. We chatted with her for a little while. She was really awesome to talk to.
We hopped off the stage, and then Tessa hopped on up so that Chapters Oshawa could get a picture of the two of them. I missed the picture, but was able to catch this, which I think is much better than what the "picture perfect" pose would have been: (It's worth it to click the picture and see the full size hehe)
I'm SO happy I had the opportunity to go to this event and meet Maggie (and Tessa)! I never thought she'd ever tour anywhere near me, so I knew I couldn't let this opportunity pass me by. My signed copies of the Wolves of Mercy Falls are all sitting safely on my shelf now, and oh my, they are beautiful! Maggie even drew a wolf in mine when I asked!
I also got an extra copy of Forever signed, as well as picked up some extra swag! Do you want to win it? Visit this post for more information on how to enter!
Big thanks go out to Chapters Oshawa for hosting, Maggie Stiefvater herself, and my friend Jen for joining me! This is something I'll remember for a long time!
