“The afternoon was all scudding clouds and woodsmoke-scented wind and a brilliant blue sky so huge it closed the hill in its own cerulean bubble.” Ballad, page 90
Now that I have had the pleasure of reading more novels of Maggie Stievfater and I still feel the same way each and every time I read her work.
After starting My Life With Books and keeping track of author signings in the area, I knew one of the authors I wished would come to Utah is Maggie. It has been a dream for the last two year to meet her and pick her brain. I've wondered if she speaks like she writes. Will she drive Loki, her car, all the way out here? Can I get my picture taken with Maggie and Loki?
Well guess what? Finally it's my turn to meet her this Tuesday at The Kings English Bookshop in Salt Lake City. I have the honor of meeting with her before the event with several other book bloggers to ask questions and learn more about her. My mind is both spewing questions and drawing a blank at the same time.
If you cannot make it to the event you can call and order your own personalized autographed copy of any of Maggie's books. The Kings English does ship books if you are out of the area. The process is so easy and I have personally taken advantage of this service many times.
