On Friday, I had the pleasure of attending a reading and signing at The Bookworm (in Omaha, NE) for Rainbow Rowell and David Levithan. Rainbow is from Omaha, so she is a hometown celebrity here, and I’m quite surprised at how long it’s taken me to meet her. David Levithan is another popular YA author, most famous for his co-authoring of Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist (with Rachel Cohn) and Will Grayson, Will Grayson (with John Green of The Fault in Our Stars).
Rainbow’s promoting her collector’s edition of Fangirl, which comes in different colors depending on the store. It also includes some awesome fanart on the endsheets and a ribbon bookmark, which I feel is a sorely overlooked book feature.
Neither author opted to read from the books, but instead spoke about their new projects and held a Q&A session. If you have the chance to see either at an event, it is highly recommended.
Here’s my haul: Some cute little buttons, Fangirl, Eleanor & Park, Landline, Hold Me Closer. Also, I already owned Will Grayson, Will Grayson and Every Day, so I had them signed while I was there. See my review of Every Day here.
