Maggie Stiefvater

Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian

Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian are coming to Canada to promote the release of their new co-written novel, Burn for Burn, which will be the first book in a trilogy! The store location has yet to be revealed, but Jenny Han tweeted that it will be at a Chapters location in the Toronto area on Thursday, September 27! Exciting, right? When more exact details are available, I'll be sure to add it here. 

EDIT on Sept 10/12: The location/time has been announced! Siobhan Vivian tweeted the details today.


I'll be attending the event for James Dashner for sure, and depending on the exact location/time for the Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian event, I'll definitely be trying to make it to that one too! After a rather slow summer for YA book events in Ontario, it's really awesome to see more authors coming to Canada this month!

Will you be attending any of these events?
