Book Signing with Ruta Sepetys


Many of you know that I LOVED Between Shades of Gray.

When I heard that Ruta Sepetys had a new book out called Out of the Easy, I was intrigued and excited.






 When I heard that Book People was hosting her at a book signing, I became fangirl ecstatic.


So I went.  I gushed.  I bought goodies.

I've got some videos for you.  Perhaps.  Still not the best since I just don't get this video on an iphone thing.  Oh wells.  I hope you like anyway.


On her mischaracterization of the 1950s and the inspiration for Out of the Easy.

  1. Oh too cool! How exciting!

    What an interesting video too. I didn't want it to end. I find I want to hear more about her parent's experience too.

    1. She tells so much more. Her parents' experience was so enthralling it didn't seem real.

    1. She has a very simple writing style that has high impact. I've yet to start this one but I have high hopes and I've been hearing great things.

    1. I haven't started it yet. I'll probably pick it up in the next read-a-thon. I want to savor it.

  4. Lol - I like how you decided to shake things up with the GIFs. :) And awesome job with the video! I've never thought to do that but there's a Julie James signing next week and I may have to follow your example.

    On a separate note, my mom's book club just read this one and she can't stop talking about it. I've had so many students read it too that I know I am way overdue for a read.

    1. I'm planning on reading it at the next readathon. I'm super excited. The GIFs just grabbed me. Lol. They are addictive so I have to use with moderation.

  5. I have yet to read anything by this author, but I know I must, because everything I hear is so flail-y and good!
