Look Who’s Going to BEA: Allyson Condie

1. Can you introduce yourself to my readers?

Hello! My name is Ally Condie. I used to teach high school English, and now I write YA novels. My novel, MATCHED, will be released this fall from Dutton (Penguin) on November 30th. I am the mother of three little boys. I like running, reading, eating, and hanging out with my husband, especially when he’s playing guitar.

2. Are there any special events, panels or galleys you are looking forward to?

Yes! My editor, the awesome Julie Strauss-Gabel, will be speaking about MATCHED on a panel. Heaven. I get to hear someone infinitely more articulate and savvy talk about my book while I sit in the audience and eat popcorn. (Wait. Will they let me eat popcorn at BEA?)

3. Will this be your first time attending BEA or are you a veteran? Any advice for those who are going for the first time?

This is my first time attending. As you can probably tell by the popcorn question.

4. Will you be doing an autograph signing at the expo? Any other fun stuff on your agenda?

Yes! My signing is on Wed. the 26th from 3:30-4:30 p.m. at the Penguin booth. And I also get to be on the Dystopian YA Panel (Wed., 10:30, Uptown state) and the YA Buzz Panel (Thursday, 2:00 p.m., location TBA).

5. What other projects are you working on that you would like to tell us about?

I’m currently working on the sequel to MATCHED, which will hopefully be released in the fall of 2011, and then it will be on to the third book in the trilogy. Other than that, I am just trying to keep all my children alive, fed, and help them locate all their lost Star Wars Legos. It’s harder than you would think.

Synopsis (Product Description):

In the novel, a 17-year-old girl, who has waited her entire life to be told by a group known as “the Society” who her soul mate is, has her world upended when she discovers she’s in love with someone other than the group’s pick.
