Book Signing: Becky Albertalli, Angie Thomas, and Julie Murphy!

On Monday night, I headed up to Indigo Yorkdale and hauled four books with me to get them signed by three amazing authors. I was by myself because most of the rest of the book squad had the opportunity to see those authors on Sunday night, at a HarperCollins preview exclusive to Indigo employees.
