Thank you, Meg Cabot! (+ Tiara Time!)
Here's a big THANK YOU to the amazing Meg Cabot for joining us at readergirlz this month! Things we learned about marvelous Meg include:
1. She loved Slumdog Millionaire.
2. She writes in bed to rock music on headphones.
3. The spying-on-neighbor scenes in How to Be Popular were based in truth! "I used to spy on my neighbor when we were teens! It was fun! (but we never went out...we weren’t even friends!)" says Meg.
We had so much fun this month!
Also, we can't let her go without telling everyone about this awesome Tiara Auction in honor of Forever Princess, the tenth and final book in the best-selling PRINCESS DIARIES series (out now!). More than 25 actors, authors, illustrators, designers, organizations and TV personalities have decorated tiaras in celebration of the book (Meg's is the one up top). Want to see Sarah Dessen's? That's it, above left!
The tiaras will be auctioned online at cMarket from January 1-31 with all proceeds benefiting programs for teens at The New York Public Library’s 87 branches.
And, if you're in NYC, Meg will be speaking about Forever Princess at The New York Public Library’s Humanities and Social Sciences Library at 42nd Street and Fifth Avenue on Friday, January 9th at 7:00 p.m. The free event is open to the public and will take place in the Celeste Bartos Forum of the landmark building.
Just one more way Ms. Cabot helps the world sparkle! Come back and see us anytime, Meg!
