Where: Jacob Javits Center, NYC
When: Thursday, May 30, 2013.
Although I missed the autographed lithographs of the new Harry Potter cover, I snapped this picture of artist Kazu Kibuishi. Some people are upset that they are changing the cover, but I feel that this series is so many things to so many people that everyone has their own vision anyway. Also, there are already different cover versions for HP.
These two staff members were trying to get me to do naughty things, which I thought was hysterical.
Veronica Roth signed posters to give out.
Then I hung out with my cohort Karen from For What It's Worth as she waited on line for Eloisa James to sign.
Karen gets her book signed.
I love to get all my books by Jeri Smith-Ready signed.
Because Kate had kindly invited me as her "Plus 1" we headed over to the Penguin Bird Bash. There were fun punch drinks, organic and vegetarian hotdogs, desserts, AWESOME music and authors, other bloggers and a special appearance by "The" Penguin. Cindy from Cindy's Love of Books won an i-pad mini! It was the number between mine and Kate's - So close! But congratulations Cindy!
Kate (Midnight Book Girl) & Cindy (Cindy's Love of Books).
Sue Grafton made an appearance!
