A few weeks ago, Jess and I made a last minute day (well, evening really) trip down to Virginia Beach to see Maggie Steifvater on The Dream Thieves tour.
I’d never been to the Meyera E. Oberndorf Central Library
library, where the event was held, but I was very impressed. The library had a nice auditorium for the event and even decorated the library with balloons and ravens for the visit.
We were a little late and a crowd of about 50 people were already in the auditorium. It’s obvious Stiefvater has a pretty diverse fanbase. There were readers of all different ages and even a few male fans–which can be kind of rare at YA events.
Stieifvater has a very free-spirited and fun personality, she has so many funny stories to tell. During the signing portion she took the time to talk to everyone and she always had a smile on her face. Because I’d already read The Dream Thieves, I purchased two of her other novels,ShiverandThe Scorpio Races.
After the signing, we of course had to take pictures with her car, which she painted to mimic Kavinsky’s car in The Dream Thieves !
