NoVa TEEN 2018 is the 5th annual, FREE festival celebrating Young Adult (YA) fiction. It’s a day-long event packed with books, authors, and activities in Arlington, Virginia. It’s the first event of its kind in the Arlington and Washington DC-metro area. Book lovers of all ages are welcome!
I'm very excited to announce my first official book festival appearance!
I'll be at the 2018 Rochester Teen Book Festival in Rochester, NY with a ton of other great authors!
Details and schedule to come!
Over the past ten years, the Greater Rochester Teen Book Festival has been an opportunity for public and school librarians to dedicate an event solely to teens, to encourage reading some of the best titles aimed at young adults, and to offer a place where readers can interact with award-winning authors. The Teen Book Fest demonstrates the value of teens within our literary communities and focuses attention on the authors who write for them.
Part of an author Q & A I participated in was filmed for an Emmy award-winning local TV show, and I was even quoted briefly in the final cut! It's amazing to see the hard work these 8th graders put in to complete the NaNoWriMo challenge--something many adults don't do. Many thanks to Kristy Shurina at Bridgewater Raritan for putting this wonderful learning experience together for the young authors.
