YA or Bust! Tour: Road Trip Edition

We had SO much fun last month. We got to sit down and chat with Stephanie Perkins, Nina LaCour, and Gayle Forman at Penguin's YA or Bust! tour stop at the Huntington Beach Barnes and Noble-- and that's not all! We also had the opportunity to moderate the author panel at the event. What an honor!

These fabulous authors had great crowd of enthusiastic readers, and we had a fantastic time interviewing them for both our podcast and the panel. This road trip edition of the podcast also marks the debut of our Teen Correspondent, Ava, who is completely awesome! Find her as @YAvaReads on Twitter. She attends a lot of book events in the SoCal area, and will join us as a third interviewer on the podcast when our schedules all match up.

We hope you enjoy our interview with these three amazing authors, as well as some event coverage featuring another awesome author who just happened to be in the crowd. Listen and find out who it is...!
