Best time ever! The librarians, teachers, parents, and booksellers who organized Tweens Read in Pasadena, TX sure know how to make authors feel special.
We received hand-knitted coffee cup warmers, cupcakes with our books on them, hot plates with cover images, and super cool posters designed around our books. It was like a wedding without the wedding–believe you me, that much planning went into it.
The hundreds upon hundreds of tweens who attended were spunky, inquisitive, and all around awesome. I sat on a panel called From a Girl’s Point of View with authors Claire Legrand, Diana Lopez, and Lisa Schroeder. I can’t wait to read their books! And I met many other great authors too.
Heather Brewer delivered a powerful keynote about the horrors of bullying.
Thanks to all who turned out to make it an incredible day!
