Top Ten Tuesday: Author Events I’d Attend

Top Ten TuesdayTop Ten Tuesday is an original blog meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is “Top Ten Authors I’m Dying To Meet / Ten Authors I Can’t Believe I’ve Met  (some other “meeting authors” type spin you want to do).” I’ve never been to any kind of author event or book expo, so I’ve never met an author before. However, here are a few authors whose events I’d love to attend and who I’d love to hear talk about writing and their books. Covers are linked to Goodreads.


1. Jane Austen

2. Neil Gaiman

3. Anna-Marie McLemore

4. Juliet Marillier

5. Heidi Heilig


6. Meg Medina

7. Tiffany D. Jackson

8. Renée Ahdieh

9. Angie Thomas

10. Leigh Bardugo

Have you ever attended an author event? Which author would you cross the country to hear speak? Let me know in the comments and be sure leave a link to your own TTT post, so I can visit.

  1. Leigh Bardugo as well I think, and Gaiman and Marillier would be interesting too. And wouldn’t it be awesome if we could meet some of the greats like Austen?

  2. Nice list Alicia! I had Leigh Bardugo on my list too as I’d just love to meet her (and probably embarrass myself by fangirling over Six of Crows)! I actually met V. E. Schwab last year at YALC and it was such a dream come true. She’s incredible, and I’m hoping to meet her again this year! I also met Melinda Salisbury at the same event and she’s lovely – she was wearing an amazing dresses so I told her how much I loved it and she seemed pleased! 🙂

  3. I magically met Gaiman about 7 years ago and it will go down as my favorite author experience. I remember people were milling about where they thought he would come out for mix and mingle and then he popped out behind me and I asked the only thing I could: “can I get a hug?” And he did. Such a good hug too. ❤

  4. Authors write stories, but I’d love to know them as a person–their story. These are great! And, why am I not surprise J. Austen is top. *winkie, winkie* I’m so bummed that Affinity Konar (Mischling) was in my home town, and I by the time I found out, it was already over! So sad Alicia.

  5. I would be thrilled to meet any of these authors, but I’d especially love to meet Leigh Bardugo and Angie Thomas. Thanks for sharing and, as always, fabulous choices! ❤
