Behind the Book: Authors Talk to Teens: Tamora Pierce : New this Fall - Enter to Win Coffee with One of the Visiting Authors

Thursday, September 20, 2012  
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Have you ever wondered how authors choose names for their characters, how long it took them to get published or whether they prefer to use a computer or pen and paper to compose? Now’s your chance to ask!

The first fifty teens in attendance will receive a FREE book. Book signing to follow the author talk!

Connellsville native Tamora Pierce is a New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author and has written twenty-eight fantasy novels for teenagers. MASTIFF, her most recent book, was published in October 2011. Crediting her fans with her success, Tammy loves the chance to go on tour and thank them in person. She hopes her books inspire her readers with the feeling that they can do anything if they want it badly enough.
