This past week was the release of the highly anticipated 2nd book in the Divergent trilogy (Click here to read my review of Insurgent) I was very fortunate to discover on Tuesday that Veronica Roth would be visiting one of my favorite indie bookstore Anderson's Bookshop!
So after I left the library Monday afternoon I stopped by the store and picked up two copies of Insurgent (one for me which I devoured in two days, and one for a friend) and two tickets to the event on Friday.
It's probably been almost a year since I attended a book signing. I used to work events at Borders before liquidation was announced and all our upcoming events were canceled, and they were always lots of fun. Getting to help run the event and spend the evening with an author was always lots of fun!
After the Q&A it was time to line up to get our books signed. Because the store was a bit on the intimate size for a crowed of 500 people and our tickets were around the 175 mark we browsed the store a bit and then decided to walk around the downtown area and got some gelato. (Yum!) By the time we were done it was time to hop in line!
