We Rocked the Drop!

After learning about Rock the Drop on readergirlz--an event in which young adult books are left in public places to celebrate Support Teen Lit Day--we decided to participate by "dropping" four of our Spring 2011 titles: The Never Weres, Chanda's Secrets (movie tie-in edition), Held, and A Sword in Her Hand. Here they are, waiting to get their bookplates:

We printed off bookplates from readergirlz and affixed them to the inside front cover or title page of each book, like so:

Once the books were ready, four staff members each took one to leave in public today. The Never Weres ended up riding the Yonge-University-Spadina subway line (though for how many stops, we don't know!):

Held is ended up in the halls of A.Y. Jackson Secondary School, Chanda's Secrets hung out in a Starbucks around College & Bay, and A Sword in Her Hand was last spotted on a bench at Greenwood subway station:

A big thank you to readergirlz for organizing this event and promoting teen lit. If you happen to spot any of our dropped books, let us know in the comments! And if you want to see more pictures of dropped books, check out the readergirlz blog.
