Veronica Roth Will Read the First Chapter of ALLEGIANT - 11:59PM October 21

To celebrate the release of ALLEGIANT, author Veronica Roth will read the first chapter to fans! Exciting! We'll definitely be watching this, while staring anxiously at our Kindle.. 

"At 11:59 p.m. on October 21, the Divergent Tumblr Web site will broadcast a pre-taped video of Roth reading the very short first chapter (“a little taste,” she said). During the segment, which she plans to tape in her home office, she will talk from the cushy yellow chair where she takes breaks, not from the treadmill desk where she writes on her PC laptop while walking “really, really slowly,” she said."
(We're assuming this is ET timezone for now..)

Those first three pages are told from Tris’s point of view. “I wanted to start the last of the series with her voice,” Roth said. But then Four gets a turn. “They’re mostly alternating by chapter, but not exclusively,” she said. Fans can expect the characters’ relationship to develop. “In the other books, they haven’t really gotten the chance to get much closer because they’ve just been running around all the time,” she said.

Veronica Roth + Surprise Film Guest in NYC:
Roth will be lying low during the midnight release, and isn’t exactly sure what she will be doing: “Probably getting ready for bed?” She’ll need her rest: later the next day she is appearing in person before an audience of 800 at the 92nd Street Y in New York City, with a surprise guest from the film Divergent, hitting theaters March, 2014.

Appearing on TODAY show:
Then on October 23, she will appear on Today. “We see this as the publishing event of the year,” said Lauren Flower, director of integrated marketing for HarperCollins Children’s Books.
