YA Book Signing

Yesterday, there was a Young Adult (YA) book signing at the Bookworm in Powder Springs. Hannah loves to read, so I looked up the books/authors that were going to be there. I was quite impressed. One of the authors is being compared to John Greene who wrote The Fault in Our Stars. Another one just had her latest book listed as one of the most exciting YA books by Teen Vogue. Hannah asked some of her friends to come with her to the book signing to support these authors and one of her favorite book stores!

Here are the girls outside the Bookworm.

Author #1 was Jennifer E. Smith. She has written several teen romances.

Her most recent book is called The Geography of You & Me. This title is one Teen Vogue's List of the 15 Most Exciting Books Coming Out This Year.

Here is author #2, Adi Alsaid.

Let's Get Lost is his first book. He is being compared to author John Greene.

And author #3 was Vernell Chapman.

She has written a series of books called the The Fountain Books. Her latest book is The Journey of Maggie Mission.

The girls enjoyed talking with the authors about books, school, and their Reading Bowl team.

The girls had to spend time with the Bookworm kitties! These babies are up for adoption through Fancy Feline Rescue of the South.

Here are the girls in the children's section of the book store.
