Bridget Zinn Release Celebrations

Bridget Zinn's first YA novel, Poison, is being released by Hyperion on March 12, 2013. 

Unfortunately, Bridget died from cancer in May 2011 at the age of 33. Being published was Bridget's dream. Now, nearly four years to the day from her diagnosis, her novel is at last reaching readers. On her behalf, her friends and family want to celebrate her accomplishment and help get her book into the hands of readers.

Poison's first review just came in, a near-rave from Kirkus Reviews, who write, "Don't let the title or cover fool you! No grimdark teen fantasy or angst-y heroines here; just a frothy confection of a fairy tale featuring poisoners, princesses, perfumers and pigs, none of whom are exactly what they appear (except maybe the pigs)…. Good silly fun—a refreshing antidote to a genre overflowing with grit and gloom." We're sure this is the first of many happy reviews to come for Bridget's debut.

Since Bridget isn't here to share her novel, people are pulling together to help get the word out about this former librarian's sweet, hilarious debut.

As Bridget was a Portlander we are excited to be a part of the Blog Tour and will be posting later in March for the release of Poison.  Below are two events that are coming up that we hope to see you at!
