Book Signing & Meet the Author: Tahereh Mafi
That’s right, Tahereh Mafi dropped by at a bookstore near me and signed copies of her debut novel, Shatter Me, as well as spoke with the little audience that gathered, answering any questions that came up.
She is super nice and, in my opinion, very genuine from what her actions said and how she spoke to everyone. Unfortunately, I don’t remember any of the questions and answers, but there weren’t too many and nothing “surprising” was discussed. Some talk about how she came up with the concept, how she was able to write in this particular style, about Warner.. [hands down the most intriguing character in the book].
Her book is written in the first person, present tense, and has a very unique style of writing that will not appeal to everyone. But if you can get a hang of reading it… you’ll be sure to love it. I read it and couldn’t put it down until I finished (See my review here). Below is the official trailer for the book Shatter Me as well as a couple of my personal pictures from the signing.
The visit was a lot of fun and I’m glad Tahereh was so down to earth and genuine. I am definitely awaiting her second novel in the series: Unravel Me, which is set to be released in February 2013 [ah! too long a wait].
