Recap: Colorado Book Blogger & Author Lunch

PhotobucketOn Saturday, February 25th, Colorado had its first book blogger/author/writer lunch in Denver (that I'm aware of)! We had such a great time, and hopefully this is the first of many, many CO book community meetups. Unfortunately only 8 (of 21 invited, including myself) were able to attend. However, all the responses were positive and there's a lot of interest for future events!


Attendees!

Though I wish more could have attended, I think this size group was great for a lunch event. We had great conversations and I think it was easier to talk with everyone. We spent 2+ hours chatting about our favorite 2012 (so far) reads, book recommendations, working with publishers, and upcoming conferences!  My favorite part though was being able to pick the brains of authors Brenna, Eisley, and Emily! I loved hearing how Brenna and Emily approach writing... And of course, us bloggers asked about all the authors' upcoming YA releases! Check them out, and add them to your to-read lists!

Through to You by Emily Hainsworth (Balzer + Bray, Oct 2012)
Pieces of Me by Eisley Jacobs (Summer 2012)
Paper Valentine by Brenna Yovanoff (Razorbill, Feb 2013)

I'm currently working on a "Colorardo Book Community" page that will list all the book bloggers, authors, writers, etc. and book events in our great state, so keep an eye out! Also, if I missed you, and you weren't invited to the event, please contact me at bookandlatte @ gmail (dot) com so I can be sure to add you to the list. Katie (Katie's Book Blog) is already organizing our next event (thanks Katie!)! We plan to meet up for dinner (location TBD) after the CO Teen Literature Conference on March 31, 2012.
