Your Favorite Authors Talking Live




Your Favorite Authors Talking Live
March 26, 2014
We've loved Amy Poehler's Smart Girls at the Party since back in the day, and now they are highlighting a new show called Ask! Authors! Anything! hosted by the fantastic Megan McCafferty (author of the beloved Jessica Darling books).

Her first guest? Another favorite of ours, Ms. Sarah Dessen! (You missed the live interview, but you can watch the video here.) Next up is the amazing Laurie Halse Anderson. We think this show should be called Ask! The! Best! Authors! Ever! Anything!, because the lineup is spectacular.

Check out the tumblr for the show to submit questions, suggest authors for Megan to host and join in on all the book talk. We are so there.
