It's hard sometimes to get in the mood for Halloween here in So-Cal with our lack of a true fall season, but not for teens in Escondido! To celebrate this horrific holiday we Skyped live with Alexander Gordon Smith, author of the Escape from Furnace series.
As Darren Shan wrote, "Furnace is hotter than hell and twice as much fun! Sign me up for a life sentence of Alexander Gordon Smith."
This nightmarish edge-of-your-seat thriller is perfect for this time of year and will have your reluctant readers clamoring for the rest of the books that have yet to be published in the U.S. Whether you're a veteran Skyper or have never chatted live online with an author, I highly recommend that you bring Gordon to your library. The reason he goes by Gordon and not Alex is a funny story that I'll let him tell you!
View pictures from the event, stay tuned for a video, and read the next post with the full interview...you'll be glad you did.
