Mary Pearson Author Visit Book Winners!

Another big thank you to teen author Mary Pearson!  On Wednesday, November 7, Mary spoke with more than 70 teens about her book The Adoration of Jenna Fox.  Each teen who signed up was given a free copy of the book, which Mary then signed and gave all teens a small gift.  In addition to the awesomeness of a free book signed by the author, free pizza, and more than 30 minutes to ask questions about the writing process, eight lucky teens walked away with something extra special.  By completing a crossword relating to the book The Adoration of Jenna Fox teens earned a chance to win one of three copies of The Fox Inheritance, which is the second book in the trilogy.  Teens also earned a chance to win another one of three copies by completing an author visit evaluation form.  On top of that, two teens who handed in their author visit evaluations were big winners, as they each took home a signed copy of Fox Forever, which is quite possibly the most exciting part of the evening since the book doesn't come out until March of next year.  Several teens asked how they would know who won, so we decided to list all the winners on our blog.

Congratulations to Ryann Bowers, Ella Clayton, Lauren Geletka, Kris Gutierrez, Tori Hanshew, and Brandon Milby who all won copies of The Fox Inheritance, and another congratulations to Sara Bush and Nathan Olesinski who are the only two people likely in the state of Indiana to have signed copies of Fox Forever!

Once again a big thank you to Mary Pearson, our Teen Council who picked Mary to come to the library, and to all of our staff, volunteers, and teens who came to the visit.  Thanks to you, this has been our most popular teen author visit to date.  We will bring another author here in 2014, but in the meantime, keep an eye out for information about a book release party in March 2013 as well as autographed copies of Mary's books as summer reading prizes.
