Ally Condie will be in conversation with Shannon Hale to celebrate the release of the 10th anniversary edition of MATCHED (Penguin Young Readers) at a virtual event hosted by Porter Square Books via Crowdcast on Thursday, November 12 at 7:00 pm (ET).

The deluxe gold edition Condie’s modern dystopian classic MATCHED features an extensive retrospective Q&A with Ally and Soman Chainani, a bonus story, “Green Girl in a Green Dress,” and a discussion guide. The gold edition also includes the first official map of the Matched trilogy world, created with a professional cartographer and based on Condie’s own drawings.

In the Society, Officials decide. Who you love. Where you work. When you die. Cassia has always trusted the Society’s choices. And when her best friend appears on the Matching screen, she is certain he’s the one—until she sees another face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black. Now she is faced with impossible choices: between Xander and Ky, between the only life she’s ever known and a path no one has dared to follow. Between perfection and the truth.

Ally Condie is the author of the #1 New York Times bestselling Matched trilogy and co-author of the Darkdeep middle grade series. She is also the author of the novel Summerlost, an Edgar Award Finalist. A former English teacher, Ally lives with her family outside of Salt Lake City, Utah. Ally has an MFA from the Vermont College of Fine Arts, and is the founder and director of the nonprofit WriteOut Foundation.
