Maggie Stiefvater and Corey Whaley were fascinating speakers at their author event last night at Buena Vista. They both read from their works, and then answered abundant questions from the audience of 76--about writing ideas (Maggie based The Scorpio Races on a folktale about Irish water horses), character names (Corey got all the names of people in Where Things Come Back from place names--cities and towns in Arkansas, where the book is set), inspiration, process, what they read.... We had a great time!
If you weren't able to come, but would like to buy an autographed copy of their books, we do have a few left (for Burbank teens only). Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org! We'll let them go in the order of emails received, so if you want one, don't delay! We have two autographed copies of The Scorpio Races, two of Where Things Come Back, one copy of Linger, and one copy of Forever.
