If you live in the Washington area, here’s your chance to meet Veronica Roth! On March 12, 2013, Veronica will join other Young Adult authors (Kristin Halbrook, Kirsten Hubbard, Kody Keplinger, and Phoebe North) at a book signing event in Shelton Timberland Library in Washington from 4:00 – 5:30 pm PST. This is a must attend event if you’ll be in the area! Here’s more information from YA Highway:

There’s always been this expectation that, one day, we would buy an old VW bus, paint our logo on the side and drive it all over the country, visiting as many bookstores as possible along the way and figuring out how to cook three meals a day for a dozen+ people with only a Bunsen burner and a dented tin camping pot. We’re still working on realizing that particular dream, but today we’re excited to announce the first (of many!) official YA Highway author event!

Please join us on Tuesday, March 12th from 4:00 – 5:30 pm PST at the Shelton Library, just outside of Olympia and Tacoma, WA, for an event filled with books, insights and (probably) laughter. With lots more YA Highway books in the months and years to come, this is just the beginning of a beautiful tradition.We hope to see you there!

And here is what Veronica had to say on her blog & tumblr:

On March 12th I’m going to be chatting (and signing) in Shelton, WA with some of the wonderful women of YA Highway: Kristin Halbrook, Kirsten Hubbard, Kody Keplinger, and Phoebe North. If you live in the area you should come, we would love to meet you!

Who: Me, Kristin Halbrook (Nobody But Us), Kirsten Hubbard (Wanderlove and Like Mandarin), Kody Keplinger (The DUFF, A Midsummer’s Nightmare, Shut Out), and Phoebe North (Starglass, out in July)
What: A discussion and signing (for those who have books out)
Where: Timberland Library, 710 W Adler, Shelton WA
