Andrew Smith is the author of
The Marbury Lens,
In the Path of Falling Objects,
and Ghost Medicine.

His newest novel, Stick, is due out on October 11, 2011
from Feiwel & Friends.

The Marbury Lens was recently mentioned in a Wall Street Journal article on the darkness of YA literature... sure to be one of the hot topics at YA in Bloom.

In addition to bringing some hardcovers for the Library Booster Box, Andrew will be raffling off his one and only ARC of Stick at Saturday's event--wow! Thanks, Andrew!

Thanks also to Lisa Yee for inviting him :)

Hey, so you know how I said the library booster box was getting too big for its britches? (Ok, I didn't say that, but you know what I mean...)

It has gotten so big that we'll have to split it in two! That's right--we'll be choosing a school library and a public library to win the boxes.

Thanks to more of our generous donors:
