I’ve written about David and his work on my blog on numerous occasions, (please follow the tags above to see past entries). He is a prolific and respected author. He describes his first novel Boy Meets Boy, as a “dippy, happy love story”, but it isn’t like anything that you’ve read before. It takes place in a school where the cheerleaders ride Harleys and the star quarterback goes by the name Infinite Darlene. He is also the author of Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist, which was turned into a successful motion picture and the moving piece on 9/11 entitled Love is the Higher Law. He co-wrote Will Grayson, Will Grayson with John Green. His last three novels have all been boundary pushers. In The Lover’s Dictionary he tells the story of a two year relationship in dictionary entries. In Every You, Every Me, is told with the aid of photographs and his latest book Everyday, challenges readers to transcend our physical beings.

(I had the chance to see Maggie twice this Spring. This pic is from TLA in April 2012).

Maggie Stiefvater introduces herself on her website like this:

“I write books. Some are about homicidal faeries. Some are about werewolf nookie.
Some are about neither.”


Her books are both wildly popular and critically acclaimed. The Shiver trilogy is the werewolf set. Next she wrote the Book of Faieries. The Scorpio Races received a starred review on both Publisher’s Weekly and Booklist and was a Michael L. Printz Award Honor title of 2012. Her latest title The Raven Boys is also receiving rave reviews and has appeared on numerous bestseller lists. I had the opportunity to see Maggie at TeenBookCon earlier this year. Please follow the tags to read more about it.

I hope to see you at Barnes & Noble next Thursday night!
