Read Brave 2014!

How are you all enjoying Eleanor & Park? I read it last fall, and now I am re-reading it via the audiobook version, which is excellent. It won an Odyssey Award Honor this year, which is what encouraged me to give it a try. You can read Rowell's comments about the audiobook here.

We'd love to see you at one of the Read Brave events! Here is the schedule:

Thursday, Feb. 27, 2 p.m.
Avalon School, 700 Glendale St

Thursday, Feb. 27, 7 p.m.
Como Park Conservatory, Rainforest Auditorium, 1225 Estabrook Dr

Friday, Feb. 28, 9:30 a.m.
Central Library, Youth Services 90 W 4th St

All events are free and open to the public. At each event, Rainbow will discuss her book and then be available for signing. Addendum Bookstore will be selling her books.

You can also join our Read Brave Goodreads group to discuss the book with others.
