I’ve been really lucky to have met a lot of authors and honestly MOST of my favorite authors. Between having a decent amount of events come to Philly area and being close to New York, I’ve been SO lucky to see so many great authors! It’s always memorable to meet an author whose books I have enjoyed and chat with them or an author who you’ve chatted with for YEARS and then finally get to meet (cough *that time I met Morgan Matson after YEARS of loving her books*) but here are some of my most memorable author moments in my seven years of blogging. I hope you’ll share some of your most memorable author meetings with me in the comments!
1. That time I got to celebrate my birthday with Gayle Forman:
Okay so technically it wasn’t my FIRST time meeting Gayle. I had been lucky to meet Gayle, one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE AUTHORS, a bunch of times between her coming to Philly a couple times for events and me going to NYC to events she was at. She is literally my favorite — so smart, so interesting, funny and I LOVE HER BOOKS SO MUCH. She was coming to our area on my birthday and I tweeted her that I was happy to be spending my birthday at her event and she’s like I’M BRINGING YOU A CAKE. And like….she actually did. And the whole crowd at my favorite local indie bookstore sang to me. Birthday 2013? ONE OF THE BEST BIRTHDAYS EVER. Gayle is The Best.
