Two or three times a year, PBC has the privilege to host a small dinner with a touring author and a group of Valley educators.  Jade & I look forward to the opportunity to bring some of our diverse, but like-minded (i.e. book-obsessed!), customers together for a relaxing evening, a good dinner, and interesting conversation featuring an author.  In the past we’ve welcomed Heather Brewer, James Dashner, Laurie Halse Anderson, David Levithan, and many others and it’s always been an experience to remember.  Last night, while on his nationwide tour for Goliath, the final book in the Leviathan Trilogy, best-selling author Scott Westerfeld  joined us for another great gathering. Read More →

It’s your chance to meet some great YA authors, including Melissa Marr (Wicked Lovely Series), Kelley Armstrong (Darkest Power Series), Alyson Noel (The Immortals Series), and more!  Here’s what the Smart Chicks say about their tour: Our Tour, Our Way Author tours are usually organized by the publisher.

Organize the events. So, in Sept 2010, we’ll do just that. Where & When: September 17th, 2010 7PM @ Scottsdale CivicRead More →

Heather Brewer was not your typical teen growing up. She wore black, danced under full moons and devoured every book in sight. She hasn’t changed much. Today, Heather can be found writing in her funky, black Happy Bunny jammie pants, dancing under the full moon, devouring every book in sight, and attending renaissance faires in costume (and in character).  And the best part (at least for PHX) is that she’ll be here visiting local schools on April 23 & 24, 2009!   Tenth Grade Bleeds is the 3rd installment in this great series – available June 2009.
