Final stack of books I had signed today. Only purchased 4 on site (Max Tilt, Night Gaunts, Bobby Kennedy, The Masterpiece). Please note that Ann M Martin was not in attendance, but BSC ghostwriter Peter Lerangis was (meeting him was the highlight of my day).

tjwill Awesome! 9mo
Reviewsbylola I didn‘t realize BSC had ghostwriters!! Off to google. 9mo
Zelma @Reviewsbylola She wrote the first 32 (give or take). Then moved on to other books and projects. 9mo
bookandcat @Reviewsbylola yes the dedication page always shows who was the ghostwriter (author acknowledges...). Ellen Miles did all of the mysteries, Nola Thacker was a popular one, etc. Martin did all of the outlines and helped proof all manuscripts, but she could not keep up with a more than a book a month publishing schedule. David Levithan was n intern at the time and was in charge of keeping the "BSC BIBLE" updated so books stayed consistent. 9mo

It was so fun to have my mom in town for the book festival! We loved hearing all of the author talks, especially the authors of My Dear Hamilton! #morristownfestivalofbooks #mfob #booktalk

Awkward selfie with Leslie Jamison! My favorite serious essayist (Sloane Crosley is my favorite humor essayist).

Max Tilt: Fire the Depths | Peter Lerangis
post image

I MET PETER LERANGIS! He was a ghostwriter for many Babysitter's Club books. He was the NICEST person and he wrote the best inscriptions in the books he signed for me. Can't wait to check out his new Max Tilt series, based on Jules Verne books. #morristownfestivalofbooks #mfob

LibrarianRyan If you are a fan of 80s mg series you should check out In 1/2 way through and living it. 9mo
