Random House Releases Video With Former SNL Castmember Ana Gasteyer And Bestselling Author Ann Brashares To Promote New Novel The Here And Now

NEW YORK, April 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The original queen of YA literature and author of the internationally bestselling Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series Ann Brashares is back on the teen scene with her biggest novel yet— THE HERE AND NOW (Delacorte Press/ On sale April 8, 2014 / $18.99).

In honor of the book's release on Tuesday, April 8, 2014, Brashares and friend Ana Gasteyer , of Saturday Night Live and Suburgatory fame, team up for a comedic video.

Brashares started a cultural phenomenon with the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series, which began in 2001, produced two major motion picture adaptations, and has sold over 8 million copies.

In THE HERE AND NOW, an epic romantic thriller, Brashares enters a whole new world while still capturing the teen voice and heart in the way we have come to know and love from her. This is the story of seventeen-year-old Prenna James, who immigrated to New York when she was twelve. Except Prenna didn't come from a different country. She came from a different time in which the world has been left in ruins. Prenna and the others who escaped to the present day must follow a strict set of rules, and she does as she's told, believing she can help prevent the plague that will one day ravage the earth and stop humanity's destruction. But everything changes when Prenna falls for Ethan Jarves.

THE HERE AND NOW will release with a 150,000-copy first printing and a major marketing and publicity campaign. Ann Brashares will embark on a 10-city national book tour at publication, meeting fans in New York, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Chicago, Houston, Dallas, Denver, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Seattle.

Ann Brashares is the #1  New York Times  bestselling author of the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series,  3 Willows, The Last Summer (of You & Me), and  My Name Is Memory. She lives in New York City with her husband and their four children. Discover more about Ann on AnnBrasharesBooks.com. Follow her on Twitter @AnnBrashares with #hereandnow.
