Author Event: Lauren Kate

Lauren Kate



I had the chance to attend the Lauren Kate Passion Event at Books & Books last week with some of my favorite local blogging buddies.  Seeing as how I’m not much of a YA buff, I hadn’t read any of Lauren’s books prior to this event.  However, after getting to learn more about Lauren and her books I may just give them a shot.  Lauren was sweet, sincere and friendly.  She has an incredible passion for writing that radiates from her.  She started off the event with a reading of Passion, answered a ton of questions from the crowd and followed it up with a signing session.  She took her time with each of the readers who asked for autographs and was more than happy to snap pictures with everyone.






Of course the highlight of these events for me is getting to hang out with the homies.  Met some new faces this time around which made it that much more awesomer.  (Yay for made up words!)

  1. I Love Lauren Kate!!! She's so sweet and her handwriting and signature is the prettiest I've ever seen! I was so happy when I met her at BEA, although it was only short while she signed "Passion" for me. *squeals*

    But I'm also super jealous you meet all those lovely bloggers!!!!! I especially would LOVE to meet Isalys Nela and Ash!

    Glad you had fun !:))

  2. She's incredibly sweet. I didn't have any books to sign so I wasn't able to check out her signature.

    LOL! The blogging buddies are what makes the event so much fun. Hopefully one day we'll all get to meet up and hang out.

    Thanks for stopping by. =)

  3. I would love to attend any event where authors and books are involved. Looks like good times!

  4. @Smash - Fun times indeed!

    @Jen - A good time was definitely had.

  5. That sounds like such a fun event. I haven't read her books either, but I the book covers are simply amazing. I believe I will give them a read.


  6. @Zee - Thanks for stoppin' by my friend. It was definitely a good time. If you end up trying them out let me know what you think. =)

  7. OMG You all went together? How fun!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. That is awesome Jen! I'm so happy for you that you are able to do things like this. Kansas isn't a popular stop for many authors...not sure why but it's not. Maybe we just don't have big enough populations in towns to draw a huge crowd or something. :-( It looks like you had fun and it's got to be awesome being able to see people in person who you talk to through blogs!

  9. It's definitely a blast. Maybe once you head off to NM you'll be able to participate in more events.
