Book Event: Brave New Teenagers featuring...me!

You may remember last summer I attended a Book Event at the New York Public Library, titled Girl Power? Teenage Heroines in Young Adult Dystopian Fiction. I loved the event so much and had so much to think about it I covered it in three parts on my blog: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3.

The presentation was built out from presenter Katherine Broad's research as part of her PhD, as well as the book she was co-editing with two others, all about YA dystopian lit. Back in the fall, I got an e-mail out of the blue from Kate, asking me to participate in the book release party! I was stunned, and honored, and the big day is finally here!

If you're going to be in New York City tonight, I invite you to come listen to me for a few minutes, as well as some other very smart people, at the Brave New Teenagers event at the CUNY Graduate Center (365 5th Ave) to celebrate the release of Contemporary Fiction for Young Adults: Brave New Teenagers edited by Balaka Basu,Katherine R. Broad, and Carrie Hintz. I'll be speaking for about five minutes about why I spent so much time blogging about dystopian lit before I took my semi-leave-of-absence from the blog (especially in light of the new job, which, BTW, is awesome, and I'm even doing some YA marketing now, so double-awesome).

Hello, I am new to blogging and internet sites in general and
was curious about how you got the "www" included in your web address name?
I see your web address, "http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=8136422718652647102&postID=3809236683197978929" has
the www and my domain looks like, "http://mydomain.com".
Do you know just how I can alter this? I'm using Wordpress. Thank you so much

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though
you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking
about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something informative to read?

I do not know whether it's just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing problems with your website. It seems like some of the written text within your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This could be a problem with my internet browser because I've had this happen previously.

Howdy just came upon your website via Yahoo after I typed in, "Blogger: Bookish Blather"
or perhaps something similar (can't quite remember exactly). Anyways, I'm glad I found it
because your subject material is exactly what I'm searching for (writing a university paper) and I hope you don't mind if I gather some material from here and
I will of course credit you as the reference.
Appreciate it.

this problem. If you have any recommendations, please share.
Thank you!

Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see
if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

When I originally commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now
each time a comment is added I get three e-mails with the same comment.
Is there any way you can remove people from that service?

Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to
her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her
ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is
entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

Hello! I know this is kinda off topic however

vice-versa? My blog discusses a lot of the same topics as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each
other. If you are interested feel free to shoot me an email.
