The intent of this book is to rebuke the very image elicited from reading the title: Millennials are more than gloomy young men who sing depressing songs into their iPhones or vain young women who purse their lips to take the perfect Instagram photo.

WEIRD GIRL AND WHAT’S HIS NAME

Award-winning LGBT YA author MEAGAN BROTHERS celebrates the release of her extraordinary new novel WEIRD GIRL AND WHAT’S HIS NAME with a reading at Cornelia Street Cafe on Friday, October 9 at 6 p.m.

“An Evening with Meagan Brothers” will feature the author—whose previous books include Debbie Harry Sings in French and Supergirl Mixtapes—reading from her new book and sharing stories about what inspired it. A book signing follows the reading.

The new release has already received rave pre-publicity praise. In a starred review, American Library Association’s Booklist says, “The characters are wonderfully likable, the story is smartly written.” Kirkus Reviews notes, “Voices are crisply and intimately drawn . . . Carefully and subtly imagined.” Lambda Award winning author Alex Sanchez (Rainbow Boys) says “Tender characters, tangled romances, and page turning mysteries weave together wonderfully in this exquisite story of love, betrayal, and friendship.” And noted author Janice Erlbaum (Girlbomb) raves, “As someone who’s been both a weird girl and a what’s her name, I heartily endorse this book.”

Copies of WEIRD GIRL AND WHAT’S HIS NAME will be available for purchase and signing at the event. 

Cornelia Street Cafe, 29 Cornelia Street (btwn W. 4th & Bleecker), 212-989-9319.

Meagan Brothers signs the very first issues of Weird Girl and What's His Name.

This weekend's Brooklyn Book Festival was an overwhelming success! Over at the Three Rooms Press table, we SOLD OUT of Weird Girl and What's His Name, and author Meagan Brothers met with some wonderful fans and signed so many books. It was great seeing old friends and new stop by the table to talk books, writing, and community. I met some lovely new writers and incredible editors from all over the publishing world. Other highlights included holding a 1956 issue of The Paris Review in which Ernest Hemingway was interviewed; discovering the reading community House of Speakeasy; and buying an issue of Armchair/Shotgun, a beautiful, full-color, art and literary journal, which I cannot wait to keep reading (I couldn't wait; I got started on the train home). All in all, another great festival; looking forward to a great new year of books!
