And I'm gonna be talking at the downtown branch of the Los Angeles Public Library tomorrow...about reading...and teens...and why teens should be reading, I suppose (author's note: my talk still needs a little work). 

So, if you happen to be around downtown LA tomorrow and want to hear me explain why you should be reading more, I suggest that you give it a visit. 


Now, I'm sure there are some of you who are interested in the idea of coming to the teen read event at the downtown library, but aren't quite sure that they're ready to commit their prime Tuesday at 4PM time to hearing me talk.  Well, how about I sweeten the deal a bit. 

More reasons you should come

1.  I'm not the only one talking.  I will be joined by fabulous YA authors Cherry Cheva and Brenda Woods

2.  When she isn't writing hilarious YA fiction, Cherry Cheva is also one of the head writers on Family Guy.  Thus, she is at least partially responsible for the following clip. 

And since Cherry cares so much about Teen Read Week, she is going to be playing an exclusive clip from next week's episode.  Seriously.  If you come to the library tomorrow, you will get to see next week's Family Guy a solid five days before your friends and neighbors.  Just imagine that kind of bragging power. 

3.  You can win Guitar Hero somehow.  I'm guessing in a raffle.  Sorry, I just read that off the flyer, so I don't have all the details, but still...WIN GUITAR HERO. 

4.  I've been told that there will be brownies.  I don't know if these are supposed to be special "for the authors only brownies" but since we're cool, I'll make sure you get some. 

So, there you have it guys.  I hope to see you at the downtown library. 

Also, for any of you guys who live in the greater LA area but don't want to go downtown, send me an email at, and I'll let you know where the closest library is that is participating in Teen Read Week.
