I hope everyone reading this is safe, that your loved ones are healthy, and that you are staying home (and reading).

If you want to order signed books, you may do so at Oblong Books and Music, in New York. They are shipping promptly and, like every independent store out there, could use our support.

Meanwhile, I'm planning a few virtual events with independent bookstores in April. As new events are added, I will try to update here and also post on Twitter and Instagram (I'm @rebstead in both places).

So far, we've got this:

April 29, 7pm

Hoping to see you in the ether.

Hi Rebecca,
1st time on your site. I didn't think it was possible to love one of your novels more than When You Reach me...but, The List of Things That Will Not Change became my favorite YA for 2020! In fact, I was on a Zoom Back To School night for my 12 y.o., parents only with the teacher, and we were asked to show a few things that have kept us comfort during COVID...I brought out your book and my sons teacher started to squeal as she loved it too. So, while other parents displayed bottles of whisky or their binge show, I had your hardback.
