Approximately two hundred lucky Granville students got to hear a talk/presentation by THE Lauren Oliver. If you weren’t one of them, head on over to Cover to Cover Bookstore in Clintonville for the 7:00 presentation and autographing, OR pose as a UA student tomorrow and sneak into their presentation.
The students (and other lucky audience members) were treated to a humorous and inspiring talk, as well as getting time to ask many thoughtful questions.
Lauren started with herself as a writer and shared many interesting personal facts along the way. Here are just a few:
Her father is a published author, as well.
Her best friends all have each other’s names tattooed on their bodies. Sorry Samantha Kingston. No one is going to be getting your name tattooed on them!
Her parents wanted her to be a lawyer. She’s really glad she didn’t take their advice.
Her words of advice:
Write every day
If you haven’t checked out her blog, you should.
Thank You Lauren Oliver!
