4th Annual YA Novel Cuisine Luncheon & ARC Giveaway of ARROWS
December 15th, 2015 by Liza Wiemer

For the past four years, Wisconsin and Illinois authors/bloggers/librarians/teachers have gathered together for a luncheon inspired by foods mentioned in various novels. This may have been our best year yet! After all, we had some fantastic new people join us, including Alyssa of lifeofabookenthusiast.wordpress.com, who drove all the way from Michigan to be with us! Though people are still talking about the Dragon Risotto from The Fault in Our Stars, which we had three years ago. 😀

There is no way this event could be done without my awesome co-host Heidi Zweifel of YA Bibliophile. Together with Alyssa, we had a blast cooking together, laughing and yes, tasting.

Our group included: Monica Fumarolo,  Heidi ZweifelKristen HarveyAlyssa PerrinErin ArkinJaime ArkinRachel KinnardLori Lee and her daughter, Phoebe Dyer, Mary EversTara Jordan, Liz CzukasJenny ChouSilvia AcevedoMelissa GorzelanczykEmily AlfanoJaimie M., and me!

As part of our fun celebration, everyone received an ARC of Wisconsin debut YA author Melissa Gorzelanczk’s ARROWS, which is being published by Delacorte Press on January 26, 2015! We’re all proud of Melissa and are excited for her book to come out in the world.
