Fictional Band Touring Libraries

With the YA novel Reunited (Simon & Schuster, June 2012), Hilary Weisman Graham has written a book that rocks.  Literally.

3 ex-best friends drive from Boston to Austin to catch the reunion concert of Indie band, Level3.  Is Level3 a real band?  They do have 2 songs, band photos, and a website, but they are entirely fictional.

Now, that fictional band is touring libraries!
How can a fictional band go on tour, you ask?

With a good story, lots of free stuff for your tweens and teens, and a REAL opening act!

Libraries on the tour get:

1) Live Performance by Level3’s opening act, Dilly Dilly.  Dilly Dilly is NOT fictional, but a “part folk, part electronic, entirely other” singer/songwriter who will perform a set (while apologizing for Level3 who is “stranded in Eastern Europe with visa trouble.”)

2) Giveaway by text message to your patrons of:
• 3 FREE chapters of the YA novel, Reunited
• 2 FREE MP3’s by Level3
• 2 FREE MP3’s by Dilly Dilly
• Chance to win a $50 Ticketmaster gift certificate

3) Photo Booth
set up during the show that allows tweens/teens to have their picture taken “inside” the Level3 VW band tour bus.

4) Concert Poster customized for your library.

5) Local press pitched by Reunited/ Level3’s entirely REAL marketing team.
