I was recently contacted and asked to help spread the word about a great upcoming event that no one will want to misss out on. I'm sure it's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Jay Asher and his book Thirteen Reasons Why. I'm also, of course, a huge advocate of the freedom to read and without a doubt believe that no books should ever be banned from reading!
Next week is Banned Books Week - the national book community's annual celebration of the freedom to read! Hundreds of libraries and bookstores around the country draw attention to the problem of censorship by mounting displays of challenged books!
In honor of Banned Books Week, Google+ and BookTrib.com (powered by Meryl Moss Media Relations) are proud to announce that Jay Asher, #1 New York Times and international bestselling author of the frequently challenged novelTHIRTEEN REASONS WHY, will be joining us for a Literary Google+ Hangouts OnAir on September 24 at 3 p.m. ET!
During the Hangout you can:
· Ask Jay questions directly
· WIN a free copy of THIRTEEN REASONS WHY and THE FUTURE OF US
This is a great organization and a great cause to get behind and check out some more for yourself. And I have to add...any excuse to to hear and learn a little bit more about Jay Asher and his books and I'm going to jump at the chance! You can find more information here, but spread the word and be sure to stop by on the 24th at the hangout!
