2016 NYC Teen Author Festival — Happening!

Each day promises special YA treats, in locations throughout Manhattan and Jersey City.  Everyone's getting in on the fun — NYPL, Books of Wonder, McNally Jackson, WORD.

I just spent 20 minutes trying to summarize the best offerings of this week, without leaving out any great events....and it's impossible.

Then I thought about copying and pasting the entire schedule — because it's that good! You won't want to miss any of it! 

...But that would be an unwieldy blog post.

How about you visit the main schedule page, and look over the events — there's sure to be a few that interest you.

Discussions about Young Adult literature and stereotypes and social change and adult perspectives and influential music and personal essays and navigating being an author in a social-media-world.
Readers Theater with  authors!
...tons and tons of YA Authors!

and a performance by YA's best garage band, Tiger Beat (Libba Bray, Daniel Ehrenhaft, Barnabas Miller, Natalie Standiford)

Make a week of it!
