MATCHED: Upcoming Ally Condie Events

Matched author Ally Condie has a couple of great events coming up!

First, she’ll be speaking and signing at the Boise Public Library in Boise, Idaho on August 15th! The event will begin at 2pm and is free to all visitors.


Ally will also be featured at YALL Fest 2013 in Charleston, South Carolina on November 9th! The event, held annually by fellow authors Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, is a celebration of Young Adult literature featuring 50 top authors, 25 of which are New York Times Bestsellers (including Ally!)

Most panels are free, however there is a $7 fee to attend the Keynote Speaker event and a $6 fee to see the infamous Author Smackdown challenge. You can buy those tickets here.

Ally Condie’s panels at YALLFEST will not be announced until late October.

Ally Condie’s First Event of 2013

Ally Condie has taken to Facebook to announce her first event of 2013: She’ll be taking part in the Orem Writes: YA Writers author panel with Rob Wells and Jen Nielsen!


Here are the details:
Thursday, January 10th
Orem Public Library
Orem, UT

There will be no formal sale or book signing at the event, but as Ally mentioned in her Facebook comments “…I’m sure if you came up to me with books after I would be unable to say no. 😉 “

I want to thank all of you wonderful readers for your supportive emails, comments, tweets, etc., this past week. They are always great, but this week they’ve been especially supportive, and I am so grateful. Being in the public eye is not an easy thing for me and you make it easier/less scary. You make it possible. I know it is a big investment of time to read a book/series, and I appreciate it more than I can say that you would be willing to give your time to these books and characters.

And for those of you taking the time to post reviews on your blogs, or on Goodreads, Barnes and Noble, Amazon, etc.–that’s an additional amount of time taken, and I am VERY grateful for that too.

Also, word-of-mouth cannot be overestimated–when you take the time to tell someone about a book you love (whether it’s mine or not!) that does the reading community and us as a culture a great deal of good. You’re letting people know that books and stories are worth their time.


Thank you for your wonderful stories and inspired writing, Ally! We hope you’re enjoying your book tour!
