Like YA books? Attend the North Texas Teen Book Festival!

Thursday, April 7

If you're in the Dallas, TX area—or will be later this month—and you're a fan of books, I'd like to call your attention to an event happening April 23.

The North Texas Teen Book Festival, which will be held Saturday, April 23 at the Irving Convention Center, will feature panels and keynotes with 75 Young Adult and Middle Grade authors. The event is free, and you don't have to be a teen to attend.

I attended this event last year—the first year it was held—with a group of my FYA Book Club friends, and it was a great time. This year plans to be even better, and not just because yours truly will be involved in more than just an attendee capacity (shameless plug alert): I have the awesome honor of moderating a panel on superhero books with authors Gwenda Bond, Faith Erin Hicks, Jeramey Kraatz, and Margaret Stohl, and will be speaking on a panel about writing reviews with a few other book bloggers.

You can find more info about the other authors attending and the rest of the numerous panels at the festival's website.

And if you're attending, definitely let me know so we can say hi!
