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.
