There are so many wonderful events, but this one has my vote for most awesome. It's IN the STATE CEMETERY with YA AUTHORS. Our super friend/colleague Kathleen is hosting. Expect nothing short of amazing.
Happy Book Fest, Y'all!
A Convergence of Soulsa collaboration with Austin Bat Cave featuring the Festival's young adult writers
Date: Saturday, October 22, 2011
Time: 9:00 - 9:45
Location: Lit Crawl: Texas State Cemetery
What’s spookier than a slew of the nation’s finest young adult authors all gathered together in one place? Well, a lot actually – that sounds downright pleasant. But did we mention they’re gathering in the Texas State Cemetery, where the hallowed graves of countless former statesmen (and sometime ghosts) pass their grim vigil? OK, so it might be more than a little spooky, but terror aside, this collection of sheer talent should make for a rather fun evening. You’ll get to meet the writers (listed below), hear them talk about their newest books, and maybe even watch them compete for literary glory. And don’t worry, we promise to keep the prospect of your looming mortality to, you know, a minimum. Bring a blanket and flashlight!
