Susan Dennard & Jodi Meadows Book Signing!

Hello everyone! As per usual, first off: sorry for not posting for two weeks. I got so caught up in school work, blah blah blah. That aside, yesterday (surprise, surprise!)–on a school night–I actually went out to a book signing! I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to make it but I ended up going and it was the most wonderful experience.

The Authors & Their Books

If you don’t know, Susan Dennard is the author of Truthwitch and the Something Strange and Deadly trilogy. I never actually read SS&D, but last year when I read Truthwitch–don’t know how much I actually talked about it–I LOVED it. It was one of my favorite books of the year, although I think I forgot to review it.

Susan Dennard!!

Jodi Meadows is also the author of multiple books, but the book I got signed was My Lady Jane, which she co-wrote with Cynthia Hand and Brodi Ashton. I’m so excited to read it and Jodi was so nice!

The Event Itself

The event was located in a small indie (but ADORABLE) bookstore called One More Page Books, which I would 20/10 recommend if you live in the D.C. area. The staff was super nice and because there weren’t a lot of people, the event was really casual and fun. Susan and Jodi talked about their books but also a lot about their lives, depending on what questions were asked.

One thing I learned was that Susan is a HUGE science-lover. She gushed about how much she loved science and I thought it was super cool because she is the first person I met that loves both science and creative writing/fiction. (Like me!) I made sure to tell her this later haha.

Meeting The Authors

Because I hadn’t yet read My Lady Jane yet, I just told Jodi how excited I was and I got a picture with her, which I don’t have right now. She was super sweet and gave me some bookmarks and things which I also love.

When I met Susan, I first told her how I related to her because I love STEM and books, too. She asked me what I was doing in STEM right now and I told her I go to a STEM school which she was like, “YEA! Go women in STEM!” and I felt so special. ❤ She then asked me what my name meant and she thought it was cool so she said I might steal your name (she actually took the post it note with my name on it) and use it as a character name. (I really hope she does!)

Then we talked a bit more and I got a picture with Susan as well, plus a pin and a bookmark. So in total, I got three books signed (Truthwitch/Windwitch/My Lady Jane) and this was honestly one of the best signing experiences I’ve ever had. It was so cozy and made me full with happiness. 🙂 I haven’t yet taken photos of the books, but if you all are interested in seeing how the signed copies look, I can update this post and add them!

Anyway, that’s it for this post! I hope you enjoyed reading about my experience. I know I certainly had a great time. 🙂
