Unsigned Hype selected for the Detroit Public Library's Author Day 2011!

Unsigned Hype was selected for the Detroit Public Library’s Author Day 2011, which is done in conjunction with the Detroit Public School System. Author Day coordinator Linda Curvey- Brown describes the event this way:

"Author Day is an annual, ongoing reading incentive program to encourage recreational reading and reading as a toolkit among young adults between the ages 13-17.  The teens will read books from a list of four young adult titles, and complete a report form for each book.  Students will vote in late March for their favorite author and the winning author will speak at the Author Day Grand Finale held at Detroit’s Main Library in May 2011...The Author Day program has won many local and regional awards and was named one of the top ten Young Adult programs in the United States by the American Library Association."

This is all pretty exciting but the competition is stiff. The other titles that Unsigned Hype will be up against are Gamer Girl by Mari Mancusi, Accidental Love by Gary Soto and Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles. Over one thousand students will vote for their favorite title.
