This month, author Marissa Meyer set off on a nine-city tour in celebration of Renegades (Feiwel and Friends, Nov.), first in her new YA duology. The tour kicked off on November 6 at Joseph-Beth Bookstore in Cincinnati, where fans participated in trivia, costume contests, and more. We’ve rounded up a selection of photo highlights from the festivities, which included standing-room-only superhero-themed events, an interactive signing line, and a closing keynote at YALLFest in Charleston, S.C., and cosplay inspired by Meyer’s characters.

Meyer visited the Public Library of Brookline, in Brookline, Mass. The event, hosted by Brookline Booksmith, featured a photo backdrop with the skyline from the Renegades cover, themed buttons, and a make-your-own-cupcake station. Here, Meyer is joined by Alex Schaffner of Brookline Booksmith (center) and Robin Brenner of the Public Library of Brookline, dressed as Queen Bee.
