For this edition of my author signature collection highlights, I have chosen to share some personalizations with inscriptions! Each author wrote some kind of saying that matched the title or spirit of the book.
I sent my copy of Speak with a co-worker to ALA Midwinter last year to collect Laurie Halse Anderson’s signature. Speak is one of the few non-sf/f books in my library to receive this treatment, and it’s because this book spoke to me on a personal level.
My mother-in-law brought back Perfected from an ALA Annual two years ago because she thought I might like the dystopic story.
Tithe was one of my first signed books. A librarian that I used to work with offered to take it to a conference to have it signed. I later met the author at the ALA Annual in 2013.
Earlier this year, I met Kendare Blake at BEA and collected her signature on several books and a bookplate for my collection.
I almost missed Meg Cabot at a conference because of the schedule, but since a friend was also there and waiting in line, I was able to leave my books with her. I found her in line just before she got the signature, so I was able to say hi!
I got in line for Jen Calonita just because of the series name for her new series, Fairy Tale Reform School. I’m glad I did because this middle grade novel was a lot of fun to read.
That’s it for this week. I know I haven’t been consistent with these posts, but I hope you find them interesting! More of these to come 🙂
