Tucson Festival of Books

If you’re in the Tucson, AZ area this weekend, I’d love to see you at the Tucson Festival of Books!

My schedule:

Love and Laughter: Rom-Coms – YA Author Stage (Seats 100)

Saturday, March 9, 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Signing area: Sales & Signing Area – Integrated Learning Center (following presentation)

Three best-selling authors and illustrators have created new rom-coms that combine love and laughter–with a twist. Gene Luen Yang and LeUyen Pham use the graphic novel format to share the love story (and curse) of a Vietnamese teen, while Marissa Meyer shares a sweet romance in which the character is magically gifted with luck, causing many problems.

From Cinder to Gilded to Sweet Romance: A Conversation with Marissa Meyer – Education Kiva 211 (Seats 200)

Sunday, March 10, 11:30 am – 12:30 pm
Signing area: Signing Area – Children (following presentation)

This conversation with Marissa Meyer celebrates her journey from writing fan fiction as a teen to becoming the #1 New York Times-bestselling author of The Lunar Chronicles, Heartless, Gilded, The Renegades Trilogy, and Instant Karma. Her most recent book, “With a Little Luck,” combines romance and humor along with luck, to create a sweet romance.

My next book will be LET IT GLOW (written with Joanne Levy), my middle grade debut that will be out later this year, just in time for the holidays!

Find preorder links here. And in case you missed it, check out this fun interview to find out more about the LET IT GLOW origins and how Joanne and I came to write this adorable and joyful holiday story together.

And finally, thank you to everyone who came out to the WITH A LITTLE LUCK tour! It was wonderful seeing you all and spending time with you and my amazing co-hosts.

Thanks to you, WITH A LITTLE LUCK was an instant New York Times bestseller!

Until next time, much love,
