100915-Official NYC Launch of WEIRD GIRL & WHAT’S HIS NAME at Cornelia St. Cafe
Award-winning LGBT YA author MEAGAN BROTHERS celebrates the release of her extraordinary new novel WEIRD GIRL AND WHAT’S HIS NAME with a reading at Cornelia Street Cafe on Friday, October 9 at 6 pm.
“An Evening with Meagan Brothers” will feature the author—whose previous books include Debbie Harry Sings in French and Supergirl Mixtapes—reading from her new book and sharing stories about what inspired it. A book signing follows the reading.
The new release has already received rave pre-publicity praise. In a starred review, American Library Association’s Booklist says, “The characters are wonderfully likable, the story is smartly written.” Kirkus Reviews notes, “Voices are crisply and intimately drawn . . . Carefully and subtly imagined.” Lambda Award winning author Alex Sanchez (Rainbow Boys) says “Tender characters, tangled romances, and page turning mysteries weave together wonderfully in this exquisite story of love, betrayal, and friendship.” And noted author Janice Erlbaum (Girlbomb) raves, “As someone who’s been both a weird girl and a what’s her name, I heartily endorse this book.”
Copies of WEIRD GIRL AND WHAT’S HIS NAME will be available for purchase and signing at the event.
Cornelia Street Cafe, 29 Cornelia Street (btwn W. 4th & Bleecker), 212-989-9319.
Admission $8 (includes a free drink)
