Join our Banned Books Week Discussion Today at 4 p.m. Eastern

Today at 4 p.m. (Eastern) I'll be moderating a free Google Hangout Event in honor of Banned Books Week, where we celebrate the freedom to read whatever we want! I'll be joined by bestselling author Jaime Ford (Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet), as well as authors Deb Caletti, Sean Beaudoin and Kathleen Alcalá. Should be a fun, lively discussion. (Though forgive my hoarse voice--I've been battling a nasty cold for days.) Find out how to join here.

Today at 4 p.m. (Eastern) I'll be moderating a free Google Hangout Event in honor of Banned Books Week, where we celebrate the freedom to read whatever we want! I'll be joined by bestselling author Jaime Ford (Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet), as well as authors Deb Caletti, Sean Beaudoin and Kathleen Alcalá. Should be a fun, lively discussion. (Though forgive my hoarse voice--I've been battling a nasty cold for days.)

We'll be discussing our views on banned books, how different our lives would be if our favorite books were banned, what it'd be like if our books were banned and more. Plus, we'll be taking questions from the audience via the Google Hangout Chat function.

I hope you'll join us and show your support.
Click here to join the event (it's free, plus it's a great chance to experience a Google Hangout if you never watched one before!).
