Austin Teen Book Festival – This Weekend!

The Austin Teen Book Festival will be held at the Palmer Events Center from 9:30 AM to 5 PM this Saturday. With 36 well-known and up and coming YA authors featured on six panels, the ATBF is sure to be an all day fun-fest connecting teens to the authors they love. All fans of YA books are encouraged to come watch the authors speak on panels about a variety of subjects (“Real Life Happens,” “The Thrill of the Chase,” “Creature Comfort,” etc), get their books signed and meet the authors, meet fellow readers and fans, and explore what the on-site vendors have to offer. Did I mention there’s no entrance fee – it’s free?

It’s free.

Notable authors include:

  • Neil Shusterman, author of The Skinjacker Trilogy
  • Libba Bray, author of Going Bovine and The Diviners
  • Allie Condie, author of Matched (a new book in the ACE Library)
  • Ally Carter, author of Heist Society 
  • Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl, authors of Beautiful Creatures

And many, many more authors of varying YA genres. There really is something for everyone.
