Divergent Book and Movie Fansite
Allegiant author and BEA keynote speaker, Veronica Roth, created quite a splash at the large annual Book Expo America that took place last week in New York. Veronica not only attended, but signed limited edition Allegiant posters for attendees of the book festival. Here are all the photos, interviews, and transcripts from everything Divergent related from BEA 2013.
Veronica Roth at the panel as speaker:
Divergent Examiner transcribed Veronica's full speech, here is a excerpt pertaining to Divergent fans:
My readers have helped me to end my reading drought because I love how they read. I love how they remember every detail and ask me about the characters and what will happen to them and what they meant when they said what they said on Page 45 or what I meant by making them say that horrible thing they said on Page 45.
They care about the story. The story is real for them because they're able to immerse themselves completely, and they want to tell you about all the things they like, whether it's a comic book or Ernest Hemingway or whatever lies between. The more like them I become, the more I'm able to say I'm here to learn and I want to love this book and see the value in it, the more I'm able to reclaim my love of reading and the more different kinds of books I'm able to appreciate.

Check out the posters, t-shirts, and tote bags that lucky Divergent fans received! I'm so jealous!!
