Meg Cabot will read from Overbite, her newest novel for adults, and discuss her career as a writer for adults and young adults on Tuesday, July 12 at 7 p.m. in the final event of the 2011 edition of Out Loud! The Metro Library Network Author Series.
The event—which is free and open to the public with no tickets required—will take place in Ballantyne Auditorium on the Kirkwood Community College campus. The Out Loud! Author Series is a program of the Cedar Rapids, Marion, and Hiawatha Public Libraries.
Cabot is a No. 1 New York Times bestselling author of books for both adults and tweens/teens. After working for ten years as an assistant residence hall director at New York University, Cabot wrote the Princess Diaries series, which was made into two hit movies by Disney, sold over 16 million copies, and has been translated into 38 languages.
Cabot’s newest series include the tween hit Allie Finkle’s Rules for Girls, the YA trilogy Airhead, and Abandon, the first book in a new paranormal series for young adult readers (the sequel, Underworld, will be in stores in spring 2012). Overbite is a sequel to Insatiable, Cabot’s first paranormal romance for adult readers
