Author visits are such a treat! Who doesn’t love the opportunity to talk about a book you’ve enjoyed with the person who wrote it? Or, for aspiring writers, to learn what it takes to become a published author from someone who’s already walked down that road? Well, lucky for us, young adult author Lindsey Leavitt lives in Las Vegas and her latest book, Going Vintage, will be out March 26th. To celebrate, there will be a launch party on Wednesday, April 3rd in the Clark County Library’s Jewel Box Theater. So, here’s your chance to meet Lindsey Leavitt in person, learn about her new book, get her autograph and maybe, win prizes!
The event starts at 7 p.m. and attendees who come dressed from their favorite decade can enter the costume contest for fabulous prizes. The Whitney Young People’s Desk has promotional Going Vintage bookmarks for anyone who asks, so stop by! You can get Ms. Leavitt to autograph them at the event! Check out the information below from the library district’s website and don’t forget to mark your calendars now for this event.
Wednesday, April 3rd, 7pm – 9pm, Clark County Library, Jewel Box Theater
In Going Vintage, Mallory’s boyfriend isn’t just cheating on her; he’s cheating with an online girlfriend. So she decides to swear off boys, modern technology and, inspired by a list of goals her grandmother made in 1962, to “go vintage,” returning to a simpler time. Join us as Lindsey Leavitt talks about writing tween fantasies and books for young adults, creating quirky characters, and her love of little chocolate donuts.
Go vintage with us and take part in our fabulous costume contest! Dress like your favorite era – flappers, sock hoppers, Mad Men… all welcome! Have fun dressing up and win prizes!
A book signing and reception will follow the talk. Books will be available for sale at the door. For more information on the reading, call 702.507.3459.
Lindsey Leavitt is the author of Sean Griswold’s Head, the Princess for Hire series, and the forthcoming novel, Going Vintage. A former elementary school teacher and present-day writer/mom to three (mostly) adorable girls, Leavitt is married to her high-school lab partner and lives in Las Vegas.
Ms. Leavitt recently participated in YAllapaloosa at the Centennial Hills Library in February where she and several other young adult authors hosted workshops, panels and book signings—so thrilling to meet authors whose books are familiar among teen readers, and who were so generous with their time and comments. Lindsey Leavitt also took part in the Vegas Valley Book Festival last year and will participate again this November. You can follow her at her website. Come out on April 3rd and let’s show this local author some love!
