Cool Book Scavenger Happenings!

If you are in San Francisco or close enough to venture to the city, there are free Book Scavenger maps being given out at many independent bookstores. (Click here for a list of participating stores, but call first to make sure they still have some to give away. If you aren’t local to San Francisco, you can download the PDF version here, or check back here later because I might be giving some away.) These maps are so cool–designed by the talented Marty Braun–and they look like this:

And even more exciting, 100 copies of Book Scavenger have been hidden around San Francisco at the places marked on this map. I’ve trying to share or retweet the photos as I’ve seen them online, so you can check my Twitter or Facebook page for those updates. Here are a few photos of some of the hidden books:

Beethoven loved music, but surely he’d like a great mystery read?
His statue overlooks Golden Gate Park’s Music Concourse. He’s got this female sculpture’s back…but the real question is
WHAT’s behind hers???

If you happen to be in the Denver or Chicago area on the following dates, I’d love to see you at one of the following events! We’ll be doing a scavenger hunt at the Tattered Cover event, and I’ll also be talking about Book Scavenger and signing copies. And the Chicago area event is going to be an awesome assortment of authors who write YA, middle grade, AND picture books! Should be a lot of fun.
