  1. Joon says:

    Hi. It’s me again. Sorry to bother you, but do you have any plans to go to New Jersey? I heard that you live in New York, so I hope you come here one day.

    • Jennifer Donnelly says:

      I’m sure I’ll be back in New Jersey to do a reading or talk before too long. Keep an eye on this calendar, and subscribe to my mailing list (there’s a form on my home page) and I’ll keep you posted!

  2. Kyla says:

    Do you have any plans to come to North Carolina? Preferably Charlotte? I just finished reading Revolution and it hit me like no other book I have every read.

    • Jennifer Donnelly says:

      Thank you, Kyla! Revolution hit me like no other book I have written! It means so much to me to hear that it touched you — it came from a very deep place within me.

  3. Cindy Bowden says:

    Can’t wait to see you in Dallas! The book will be a success no matter where you go! Enjoy the journey!

    • Jennifer Donnelly says:

      I’d love to come to Louisiana and meet you, too! Not sure when that will be, but maybe one day soon!

  4. Jennifer Donnelly says:

    Not yet, but I’d love to get up there! (Maybe not until the spring, though — it’s cold enough here in NY!!?)
