Libba Bray Sparkles at BookPeople

Last night, I joined hundreds of adoring fans at Libba Bray's signing at BookPeople in Austin.

Libba was funny, saucy, wise, and wonderful in brief introductory remarks, her reading, and a substantive Q & A.

I was struck that she'd finished her latest in the bestselling Gemma Doyle Trilogy, The Sweet Far Thing (Delacorte, 2007), at the Random House offices and by her obvious affection for the NYC YA writing community. Read a Cynsations interview with Libba.

Local authors in attendance included April Lurie, Anne Bustard, Shana Burg, and Greg Leitich Smith. After the event, we saw Brian Anderson.

A handful of autographed copies of Libba's books are still available at BookPeople!
