teenbookcon

THIS IS A SPECIAL BLOG POSTING!

It's here!!! TeenBookCon is happening in Houston, Texas!

Now I must say I am super bummed at the fact that I will be in Los Angeles while all of these amazing authors are in town but that doesn't mean I can't share a little love to all of you in hopes that you can still come out and support them all!!!

So here's a little info:

Place: Alief Taylor High School, 7555 Howell Sugar Land Road, Houston, Texas
Date: April 10th
Time: 10:30am - 4:00pm
Keynote speaker: Sharon Draper
Extra Fun Notes: More than TEN authors (that's right people TEN) will be on hand to talk with you about their work and books of all kinds!!!!
More Info: www.teenbookcon.com

So even though I don't need to spell it out this is totally awesome!!! I mean seriously rocks the socks right off ya! So if you are in or around town please stop by and say hello to some fabulous authors! Take a peak at the website for more information, seriously you don't want to miss some amazing authors! I'll be posting a sidebar for those who come across it at a later date, and for all of you who live in or around the area and have a minute give a little shout out to your blog buddies to let them know something fun is around the corner! Lets get the word out and get some great authors some recognition!

Thanks to the Blue Willow Bookshop for always knowing the good stuff happening in the city!!

Okay back to your regular scheduled programming! For those who have yet to see my truths for the day feel free to make your way over now! Check it out here!

Oh, I didn't know you're also in Houston! This sounds like such a cool event and I'd love to go if I could -- but being a college student with no car, that'd be difficult. *sees if she can badger her suitemate into giving her a ride*

I wish I lived close enough to enjoy it - sounds wonderful! :-)

I so love when I meet a fellow blogger who lives in my area!! I wish I could have gone there are going to be so many awesome authors! I have a wedding in LA though so this time I'll have to pass!

Gah! So many miles between me and this awesomeness. :( Sounds like it'll be a blast though. :D

When I grow up I want to travel the world and go to conferences and book fairs. Just talking and meeting with people who love and write books. :)

Stephanie said...

Thanks Jen! I'm only three hours away from Houston. Yipee!

Susan Fields said...

That sounds great, but much too far away. Why don't they ever have that stuff here in St. Louis?

I was just in Houston over the weekend. I’d love to go to this but I’m pretty sure my hubby is working that day :( It sounds like so much fun!

Aww, stinks you won't be there! Sounds like a blast!

Guinevere said...

Aw, this sounds like an awesome event... too bad it's on the other side of the country from me. :) Too bad you can't make it, but next time!

Oh man! I wish I could go. I'm sorry you will have to miss it too, Jen. But LA sounds like fun!
