Luckily, I didn’t miss out on all Friday events: Friday, March […]

New York City Teen Author Festival Recap: Part 1

During the last week of March, I depended on Lara Bars for dinner sustenance and headed downtown for a bunch of New York City Teen Author Festival events! Of course, I made sure to make an appearance because a) there were so many authors participating that I have grown to love b) I wanted to […]

Estelle - Hi Pat! There’s a huge signing at the end of the weekend and you can go to that and get your books signed. I’m sure at the smaller events authors would oblige but some of these events are held at libraries so unless you already have the book… there’s no purchasing being done. Hope that helps!

Pat - Hi! Were you able to get autographs from your favorite authors?

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - I’m very jealous that you got to go! It sounds like it was an amazing event. Hopefully I get to go (along with you, of course) next year!

elena - eeep I would love to read those 150 pages Morgan Matson cut out, especially if it meant more Amy and Roger scenes. I didn’t know David Levithan edited The Hunger Games, what a cool fact! These events sound like so much fun, thank you for sharing. Can’t wait to read your next part!

April 12, 2012 - 4:26 pm

Jess @ Gone with the Words - I LOVE any panels where David Levithan is present! So I would have been too busy hanging on his every word to take notes, haha. I always intended to take notes at this things and always forget, so good job, Estelle! 😀

Ghenet Myrthil - Great recap! My TBR list is exploding with all the books I want to read, after attending this festival. 🙂

April 12, 2012 - 3:29 pm

Ginger @ GReads! - Ok I seriously want to read those 150 pages that Morgan Matson cut out of Amy & Roger! Gah! and there’s no way that trip could ever be too long.

Sounds like you had an amazing time Estelle! Wish I could have been there, too.
