The Sunday Salon: Meeting Eilzabeth Eulberg
Posted by Caitie F on February 20, 2011
Happy Sunday everyone! I hope your weekend has been good so far. Jason had Friday off, so this has been a super long weekend for us. We had friends over last night to play games (so much fun!) and finally saw The Social Network – let me say I was NOT impressed. I thought the movie was just okay.
But the highlight of my weekend was Friday night when I got to meet Elizabeth Eulberg. I loved The Lonely Hearts Club. I actually think it was the best book I read last year. If you have not read it yet, go check out my review, because it is now out in paperback and you should go get it now. I have actually only been to one author event before, when I saw John Green in Chicago, so it was exciting just for that!
When she tweeted that she was going to be at my local B&N I emailed my husband and said we have plans…even though it was over a month in advance. Her second book called Prom and Prejudice was released this year and I am very excited to read it, but even more excited that it meant I got to meet her.
I got there and…there were four of us. Not the best turn out, but it ended up being really awesome. She did a reading from the new book, which was just great. I will be hearing her voices for the characters when I read it! She also talked about her next book coming out, which I am even more excited about. I got to ask her a few questions and we talked about the industry a little. It was a great event and she was so nice and fun.
I got two books signed (yay for having a credit card with a super low limit and APR). I got a paperback of Lonely Hearts for myself (since I gave away the copy I read) and the new book signed. I will be reading it this week (once I finish Freedom) then giving the signed copy to one of my readers!
It was an amazing event and if she is coming somewhere near you, I would recommend seeing her!
