Jay Asher and Lauren Oliver Signing March 9th, 2014

Hey Everyone!!!

So I got to do something super awesome Jay Asher (Thirteen Reasons Why and The Future of Us) and Lauren Oliver (Delirium Trilogy, Before I Fall, and Panic)!!!

I took pictures and recorded the entire Conversation Jay had with Lauren and the Q & A afterwards!  First here are the recordings of the conversations!  Both were so great! Really nice and funny!  My favorite type of authors!!

The Conversation between Jay and Lauren:

The Q & A after the conversation!  I asked a question too...mine is the one near the end for Lauren where I ask her how she came up with the concept behind the Deliria disease for the Delirium Trilogy!

Now to the pictures! So many great ones!!

The table before the signing began

This is a post card Lauren was giving out to promote her newest novel coming out this September! It's her first novel for adults!

Funny story on this subscription from Lauren,  because  I made both her and Jay laugh when I slickly handed The Romance Bookie's business card to the Barnes and Noble Rep. It reads "For Panic-Mandy-The smartest card carrier there is! I hope you love Panic."

This inscription reads: "For Mandy-Thanks so much for coming today and for being a fan!"

Jay's inscription reads: "To Mandy, Everything affects everything."

My overall haul for the day! I ended up buying "Delirium", "Pandemonium", and "Panic" because I hadn't owned them before the signing
All the lovelies that the Barnes and Noble rep at The Grove hauled out before the signing began

Lauren Pulled an Ellen at the Oscars, and took a Selfie featuring the entire audience! That's me directly behind them, in the center of the front row!

So that's it folks! Hope you all have a fabulous week!! :)
