FOLUSA Author Tea

If you’re going to MidWinter and you still haven’t gotten your tickets to the FOLUSA Gala Author Tea, tomorrow is the last day to order them online. The Tea is scheduled for Monday, January 14, 2:00 to 4:00 p.m., at the Doubletree Hotel.

Of course, author programming tends to be rather thin at ALAMW, but FOLUSA can always be counted on for a strong event. This year, I am particularly excited that Meg Rosoff is one of the five authors on the program. Her debut Y.A. novel How I Live Now won the 2005 Printz Award. Talk about a book that haunts you for weeks, this is it. Her second Y.A. title, Just in Case, was one of E! Online’s “Books You Must Read” picks of 2007. Perhaps prophetically, the article noted, “Adult readers probably ignored Case because it came out as a Young Adult novel.” Rosoff’s next book will indeed be published as an adult title:
