Los Angeles Teen Book Fest

So I’m off to LA for the Los Angeles Teen Book Fest!



This promises to be a great day of events. I mean, look at that list of authors! I’m especially excited to see my friends Ned Vizzini (It’s Kind of a Long Story) and Andrew Smith (Winger). I’ve worked with Ned once before, but Andrew and I have a friendship that has been, to this point, totally online. I am so impressed by his writing, and the fact that he is close with my buddy A.S. King tells me all I need to know about him otherwise.

I don’t mean to single anyone out, because, I mean, look at that list! There are so many authors who I truly admire who will be there. 

Here’s the schedule of events:



I’m on the 2pm panel “Keepin’ It Real” with Maureen Goo, Patricia McCormick, Ned and Andrew. Huzzah!

Then at 3, I’m on “What We Talk About When We Talk About Love” with Josephine Angelini and Elana K. Arnold. Very intrigued by the possibilities for that panel!

I’ll be signing books at 4. 

If you’re in the area, stop on by! It should be a terrific event!
