Massachusetts Library Appearance

For those of you who live in Massachusetts or Southern NH, please come see me at the Haverhill Public Library tomorrow (Saturday) at 3pm. Info is below:

Local Author Returns to her Roots to Kick off Teen Read Week

Mari Mancusi, author of the hit teen book series The Blood Coven (Boys that Bite, Stake That!, Girls that Growl) returns to her hometown on Saturday, October 11th, to help launch Teen Read Week at the Haverhill Public Library.

Mancusi, a former Haverhill resident, spent a lot of time as a teen at the Haverhill Library and is looking forward to speaking with hometown teens about growing up in Haverhill, her dreams of becoming an author, and the steps she took to make that dream a reality. She will also be discussing her upcoming book, Gamer Girl which will be released from Dutton Juvenile press in November.

The event will kick off the annual Teen Read Week celebration, a national literacy initiative of the Young Adult Library Services Association, a division of the American Library Association. This year’s theme, Books with Bite @ Your Library, encourages teens to read for the fun of it and promotes a variety of books from vampires to cooking.

The even will be held at the Haverhill Public Library (99 Main St. Haverhill, MA) on Saturday, October 11th, from 3 – 5 pm in the Johnson Auditorium.

Mari- your program in Haverhill was delightful. Your books are funny and witty: just like you. I enjoyed the local references in the Blood Coven books and they are also extra appealing to us Buffy fans. My daughter Mary won one of your ACRs for Gamer Girl and she has graciously let me read it first. Luckily I am also the mother of a level 70 Paladin blood elf so I totally get the online gaming appeal. Thanks for coming to Haverhill.
