YA Not? Launch Party for Gabrielle Zevin’s All These Things I’ve Done

Start: 09/07/2011 7:00 pmTimezone: America/New YorkNYC’s own Gabrielle Zevin (Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac, The Hole We’re In) presents her newest YA novel All These Things I’ve Done. The launch will feature her in conversation with her editor, Janine O’Malley, along with a reading, Q&A and signing. In the future of Zevin’s crafting, life is not as we know it: chocolate and caffeine are controlled substances, camera phones are illegal, and no one remembers what OMG means. Can you imagine? We’ll be serving up contraband coffee and chocolate, alongside the discussion of teen literature, dystopias, and writing the future. Facebook RSVP here
