At the NCTE Convention in Orlando, one of my favorite sessions that I attended was an Author Strand session, featuring Young Adult authors, Brandon Mull and Neal Shusterman. Click on the above video link to watch a clip of Neal Shusterman reading the opening pages from his novel, Bruiser.
Afterwards, I had the pleasure of meeting Brandon Mull and Neal Shusterman, both of whom signed copies of their books for me. I was even lucky enough to receive an advance copy of Mull's newest novel, Beyonders, which isn't scheduled for publication until 2011.
