Friday's Highlight: Simon & Schuster YA Author Panel Discussion

Angels, Amnesia, Anarchy, Apocalypse

     We had a real treat here in Provo back on the evening of October 11th. The Provo Library hosted a panel discussion of FOUR Simon & Schuster YA authors! And all of them were women-folk! Three of the four were/are also debut authors and two of the four are LDS! Becca Fitzpatrick (LDS) was the seasoned veteran of the group, touring for her newly published third book in the Hush, Hush saga, Silence. The other authors were Moira Young (Blood Red Road, see previous post on this book here), Elana Johnson (LDS, Possession, see previous post on Elana here), and Michelle Hodkin (The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer). The event was great, especially since Courtney Lowe dressed up in angel's wings (she's the best! I love that she dresses up for these events!). Also, Courtney had a pretty awesome setup wherein the audience could simply text their questions to Courtney's computer, and then she'd display them on the screen behind the authors while asking the questions aloud (Courtney was the panel moderator). Very cool and efficient tech.

So for your viewing pleasure, I give you the recording of the Simon & Schuster author panel. (To view a few pictures from the event please see the slideshow below the video.)
