BECAUSE I WAS A GIRL Conversation at Book Soup

West Hollywood, CA 90069
Inspired by the New York Times piece that went viral, BECAUSE I WAS A GIRL brings together true stories of perseverance, struggle and joy from eminent women of all ages. Please join New York Times bestselling authors Melissa de la Cruz (ALEX & ELIZA), Margaret Stohl (ROYCE ROLLS), Victoria Aveyard (KING’S CAGE), Tina Hay, Founder/CEO of Napkin Finance, and inspiring businesswoman and banker Jill Lorie, for an inspiring panel on what it means to break the glass ceiling.
Does it get any better than this? Spend an evening with two amazing YA writers, who also happen to be BFFs. Margaret Stohl and Melissa de la Cruz dish on writing YA, fandom, guilty pleasures, and their exciting new books.
Margaret Stohl’s Rolls Royce is delightful, tongue-in-cheek take on reality TV. Sixteen-year-old Bentley Royce seems to have it all: an actual Bentley, tuition to a fancy private school, lavish vacations, and everything else that comes along with being an LA starlet. But after five seasons on her family’s reality show, Rolling with the Royces, and a lifetime of dealing with her narcissistic sister, Porsche, media-obsessed mother, Mercedes, and somewhat clueless brother, Maybach, Bentley wants out. Luckily for her, it looks like cancellation may be in the works for season six. But with the show potentially ending and Porche’s failing lip gloss collection wiping out the family fortune, one thing becomes startlingly clear: without the show, there is no family. For the people she loves, Bentley will have to do the unthinkable—she’ll have to save the show.
Melissa de la Cruz’s brings to life the love story of Elizabeth Schuyler and Alexander Hamilton in her new book, Eliza and Alex. The year is 1777. As the battle cries of the American Revolution echo in the distance, New York society is readying itself for one of its biggest events: the Schuylers’ grand ball. Descended from two of the oldest and most distinguished bloodlines in New York, the Schuylers are proud to be one of the new country’s founding families, and even prouder of their daughters—witty Angelica, dazzling Peggy, and Eliza whose beauty and charm rivals that of both her sisters. Much more concerned with the colonist’s cause than balls, Eliza can barely contain her excitement upon hearing about the arrival of one Alexander Hamilton—a mysterious, rakish young colonel and General George Washington’s right-hand man.
Join us for a fun signing and discussion for two irresistible new reads.
Margaret Stohl is the #1 New York Times best-selling co-author of the Beautiful Creatures series. She is also the author of the instant best-seller Black Widow: Forever Red, and its sequel Black Widow: Red Vengeance, or as noted by one television writer, “those little paper things.” (The word you’re looking for is books.) Growing up in the shadow of Hollywood, Margaret spent her adolescence crank-calling Harrison Ford, living across the hall from a John Waters starlet, and waving to Starline Tours buses as they stopped to take pictures of her P.E. class at Mulholland Hall, where she first met Bentley Royce. These are and are not her stories.
Melissa de la Cruz is the #1 New York Times, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times and Publishers Weekly internationally bestselling author of many critically acclaimed novels, including The Isle of the Lost: A Descendants Novel and the Summer on East End series. Her Blue Bloods series has sold over three million copies, and the Witches of East End series became an hour-long television drama on the Lifetime network.
