Words cannot describe how awesome our visit with Holly Black was last night! As expected, Holly Black was fabulous, interesting, hilarious, and so cool! If you were lucky enough to be in attendance, you heard some really great stories about Holly Black‘s writing process, the YA author community, and her inspiration for her newest book The Coldest Girl in Coldtown. Many thanks go out to Holly Black for visiting our Library, and especially The Book Stall at Chestnut Court who made this author event possible!

One interesting fact that Holly Black shared: she actually rode around in a friend’s car trunk to do research for her Curseworkers series. She recalled the memory with a lot of humor, though!
