A Friday Spring Bitz and Pieces

In honor of the wonderful spring weather and the cherry blossoms, here are some items that you may be interested in!

Sure there are lots of authors out there who tweet, but how many of them tweet IN CHARACTER? Louise Rennison does! Check out the star of Angus, Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging (and the nine other books in the series), Georgia Nicholson's Tweets here:

You might remember that we loved So Punk Rock and Other Ways to Disappoint your Mother enough to put it in our top 20 from 2009. Here, the authors and cover designer talk about how it got its awesome cover.

The Longstockings are a group of YA authors including Coe Booth, Jenny Han, Caroline Hickey and Siobhan Vivian (and more!). Siobhan offered a great writing tip about getting out and listening to hear real dialogue. See it here.

Finally, a little Peeps goodness for your holiday weekend.

First,here's the Washington Post's annual Peep Diorama Finalists!

And lastly, Kristen Armstrong, librarian-to-be, allowed us to put up her footage of the great peep battle of 2010!
