And they want to have an event in your home town! To participate, just got to the YA2U website and let them know what city you want them to come to. (Hint-Hint: Erlanger!) And while you’re there, help spread the word about the contest and you can be entered to win all of their books–TEN signed books in total!
What do you think, everyone? I think this awesome group of authors should definitely visit Erlanger and the busiest library in Kentucky! Let’s do what we can to get them here! I’ll be spamming your Facebook, emails, and RSS feeds with updates about this and requests to vote and stuff as often as I can :D
Can’t think of reasons to put for why the book tour should stop here/ here are a few:
*KCPL’s Erlanger branch is the busiest branch library in Kentucky.
*Erlanger’s teen patrons love to read. We’re starting a teen-only book club in January for that reason!
*Tell them about what reading or YA Lit means to you. Has an author changed your life, your outlook, your beliefs? Has a book or story changed you for the better or meant something to you? Talk about it!
*When I think of more reasons I’ll let you know XD
Why should the YA2U Team come to your hometown? Why not join in today and share with others about this program and your hometown. The more votes we get, the closer you are to having your very own personal tour stop! Vote for YOUR town here!
