Last Thursday, I went to the Provo Library to see Marie Lu! She is the author of the Legend trilogy! If you haven't read them, DO! They are really fun!
Here is Gene introducing the author.
Marie decided not to use the podium cause it was too tall for her. Hooray for short Asians!
She had a lot of interesting things to say about her book. The idea behind the series started when she was watching Les Miserables. The dynamic between Jean Valjean and Javert intrigued her, and she wondered what they would be like as teenagers, so she decided to write a story about a teenage criminal and a teenage detective. Originally they were both boys, but her boyfriend said it would be better if one was a girl, and Day and June were born!
Here is the signing table!
It was a fun event, but I'm sad that none of my blogger buddies were there to enjoy the event with me!! Shame on all of you!
