Author Event - Audrey Niffenegger

I am having an unprecedented opportunity to attend author events this week. On Friday night I attended an event with Audrey Niffenegger at RJ Julia Bookstore. There was a decent crowd there, especially for a small store. She read a hilarious passage from the book that was sort of like a "how to" on being a ghost. After that, there were many questions from the audience - many focusing on The Time Traveler's Wife, since no one (but me) had the book prior to the signing! Some interesting info that came out of the Q&A:

  • One of her graphic novels is in talks of being turned into a ballet in London (that could be very interesting!)
  • She had no input in The Time Traveler's Wife movie
  • She has not seen the movie - so that she can continue thinking that it might have been done well
  • It took 7 years to write Her Fearful Symmetry and it has went through many major changes - such as there was no ghost (a huge part) for 2 years!

When I went up to get the book signed - the bookstore worker who was prepping the books for the author asked me where I had gotten an ARC - and I told her the publisher offered it to me, which prompted a great conversation with Audrey about how publishers are pushing for bloggers to review books.

It was a great evening! I might be going to another event on this coming Tuesday - and then that is it for awhile!
