Austin Teen Book Festival
I’m so looking forward to Saturday! It’s the first annual Austin Teen Book Festival. I’m on a panel with the Delacorte Dames and Dudes, my pals Varian Johnson, April Lurie, Margo Rabb, and Jenny Ziegler. Other panels include: “Zombie v. Vampire” with Heather Brewer, Carrie Jones, Daniel Waters, and Cynthia Leitich Smith; “Fantasy” with Libba Bray, Justine Larbalestier, Rick Yancey, and Lisa McMann; and “Real YA Voices” with Matt DelaPena, Deb Caletti, and Terra Elan McVoy.
I have to say, what I’m really excited about is hearing the local teen bands that will be entertaining us throughout the day! These include: Edison Chair, Austin School of Rock, the Carson Brock Group, Krash, and Homeskooled.
For lunch, pizza, hot dogs, root beer, ice cream, snow cones, and kettle corn will be served.
How awesome does that sound? Huge thanks to uberlibrarian Heather Schubert for putting all this together!
