Upcoming Events: LAPL Teen Book Fest

October 9, 2013 Alethea, Author Signing, Bookish Events 0

Hi, everyone! Just a quick note that the LAPL Teen Book Fest is happening this weekend on Saturday, Oct 12. At noon we (yes, we! Thuy and Alethea) will be on a panel, Read This, I Dare You, in Meeting Room A. You can also see Alyson from Kid Lit Frenzy, Maggie from YA Anonymous, and Lee from I’m Here. I’m Queer. What the Hell Do I Read? I have never been on any kind of a panel before and I hate speaking in public, so it should be interesting. :) 

You can read an interview of the panelists here!

Benjamin Alire Saenz won’t be able to attend due to illness; however, Amy Spalding,Elizabeth Ross, and Elana K. Arnold will be there instead.
