An Educational Evening About L.A. Living with Margaret Stohl

If you ever get the opportunity to go to a Margaret Stohl event, DO. NOT. MISS. IT. This was one of the most entertaining author events that we’ve been to this year, and that’s saying something!


Margaret is so intelligent, and I loved listening to her talk about writing and just  life in general. She is also one of the most real people you’ll ever meet, which is incredibly refreshing. And on top of all that, she is freaking HILARIOUS. 

It was also very fascinating to learn that this was partially inspired by a certain reality television star’s “butt facial.”


Listening to her talk about her reality-star characters from Royce Rolls was wildly entertaining. And on top of that, she gave us a crash course on what life in L.A. is all about. Check out this L.A. true or false quiz Margaret gave Ally Condie during the event. *SPOILER ALERT* If you are planning on attending one of her tour stops, she may be asking these couple questions from this video.

 


Margaret is a Utah native, which I was actually unaware of before reading Royce Rolls. It was apparent almost from the very beginning though, because there are several Utah references in this book that are just too spot-on to have been written by anyone from outside this lovely state of ours.

The YA and Wine Book Club was, of course, out in force for this event. We have several huge Stohl fans in our crew, so we all had an amazing time!


And getting to see Ally Condie is always so much fun! She is such sweetheart on top of being an incredibly talented author. Ally’s also really funny herself.


I’ll be hosting the first stop on the Royce Rolls blog tour, which starts on Monday. YAY! So be sure to check back then. #RWTR

This event was, of course, hosted by The King’s English Bookshop!

Is Margaret stopping by a city near you? Have you gotten to attend any author events with her in the past? How much fun is Royce Rolls?

  1. I don’t know why, but I find her note, “Keep rolling” epic as a way to sign a book? 😄 I was very entertained. Plus, I find that cover very appealing. Super cool event, and you do an amazing wrap-up every time! 🙂

    1. I love reality tv too! It’s so addictive! LOL. And this book just really highlights everything that is both so awful and so entertaining about it. Plus there are a few laugh-out-loud moments. Glad you enjoyed the video! Margaret is definitely one of the funniest authors I’ve met. 🙂
