Hi everyone! I hope that you are all doing well. Today, I wanted to share with you all an event recap for a launch I recently attended. It was to celebrate the release of The Fangirl's Guide to the Galaxy: A Handbook for Geek Girls! My review for this super awesome book went live recently and you can read all about it here!
I was incredibly excited to meet Sam Maggs because I enjoyed the book so much and I even planned to dress up nerdy for the day. I came with a doctor who t-shirt, tardis backpack and even a Jayne hat! I attended the event with a few bookish blogger friends: Nikki from NikkitheKnack, Michele from Just a Lil Lost, Lynne from Words of Mystery and Michelle from Musings of a Writer.
They were giving out the posters for free and I was super pumped about this because I just love it so much! It is now on my wall hanging proudly.
Sam began signing pretty early on when she arrived. She was so incredibly sweet and we got to talk a bit about what I was wearing for the event and I got to sing my praises for my favorite parts of the book. It was so nice to meet her and speak to her for a little bit. She really is wonderful!
Sam went up on stage for a little bit too and said her thank yous. Her partner had a really sweet introduction for her and there were many "Awwws" all around. It is so awesome to see a really sweet, down to earth, humble person have such a great turn out for her book launch.
All in all, it was a wonderful evening spent with bookish friends talking about nerdy things! :D Please be sure to check out the book, there is something in it for everyone!
