I just learned that JacketFlap member Wendy Mass (author of ten novels for young people such as Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life and A Mango-Shaped Space) will be doing a book phone tour this Monday, November 22nd at 7PM (Eastern Time) to promote her new book, The Candymakers. That means you can call in and join a 30 minute chat with Wendy from the comfort of your very own home! The book phone tour was organized by the Books of Wonder bookstore in New York City.
To join the tour, you need to register in advance here. You sign up (it's free!), and then you'll receive an email with instructions on how to call in. Wendy will talk a bit about what went into writing The Candymakers, and then they'll open up the call for a live Q&A session. If you order a book, she'll sign it to you (or whoever you like) and Books of Wonder will ship it in time for the holidays!
If you decide to join the chat, please leave a comment here to let us know how it went!
