Event Recap

On July 18, I went to the launch event for I See London, I See France by Sarah Mlynowski (YA contemporary from HarperCollins).  The launch was held at Forever 21, which was really interesting.  Part of the event including curated outfits inspired by places the characters in the novel visit as they go on a backpacking trip across Europe.  There were also snacks and giveaways of Forever 21 gift cards (which I did not win).  I bought Magic in Manhattan, one of Mlynowski’s backlist books and got it signed.

    A book launch at Forever 21 is a brilliant idea. What a way to hopefully snag new readers in a place they go to anyways! Sounds like you had fun, sorry to hear you didn’t win anything.

      It was really fun! And the employees were giving out fliers as people walked in to get clothes, so I think the author really did get people who otherwise would not have known about or attended the event!

      Ooh, that’s so exciting! I hope she has a great time at college!

    I have no clue how I ended up on your blog / this post [I’ve been blog hopping and I don’t even want to count the blogs I have opened the last five minutes], but I love this sort of recap! Definitely going to check this out when I get home!
