Smart Chicks Kick It

Last Monday, September 13th, was the kick-off of the Smart Chicks Kick It book tour!

Announced last year, this tour is the brain-child of Melissa Marr and Kelley Armstrong, who put together a lineup of eighteen YA authors.  The entire tour is author-funded and organized, which is unprecedented. Over the course of two weeks,  the eighteen authors will be making twelve stops in the US and Canada. Each event will boast a different mix of the eighteen authors, making each event a little bit different. However, Marr, Armstrong and Alyson Noel will be headlining every event.

Ever since I heard about the tour last year, I've been excitedly anticipating it. One of the unique things about this tour -- other than the authors running and funding it -- is that readers were able to suggest locations for their stops on the Facebook group. Needless to say, I rooted for a stop in San Francisco, and the authors responded.

That said, I am super excited to be able to attend the September 18th stop at the Menlo Park library. It's sure to be a great event! If you're going to be there, drop me a comment and I'll try to say hi.

Below is a list of the dates (starting from tonight, September 15th). I've boxed the stop I'll be attending, in case you're in the area and are looking for the details.

  1. I can't believe they're going to Brampton! That's not too far from me. I might have to convince someone to drive me out there. Hope you have a blast!

  3. I think I might go to this...right after work, I'll be exhausted but this will be worth it!
    btw the one in Chicago is actually in Naperville and it's at the Wentz(not Ventz) concert hall. Thanks for the heads up!
