Exciting News! RT Booklovers Convention Teen Day

If you’ve ever wanted to meet your favorite young adult author, the chance is here!

On Saturday, May 4 from 11:00 am-8:00 pm there is a fantastic program at the RT Booklovers convention, just for teens! 

From 11:00 am-2:00 pm attendees will join us for the Giant Book Fair where you will meet more than 80 YA authors who will be autographing in YA Alley and whose books you can purchase. A special YA locator booklet will be given out so that you can find out exactly where your favorite author is seated.

Directly following the Giant Book Fair, from 2:30-6:00 pm, there will be three hours of workshops (2 per hour) led by bestselling authors including an Author Speed Dating session where every 10 minutes an author will switch tables and sit with you. There will also be two Speed Reading sessions where authors will read short excerpts from their upcoming books. There will also be two additional workshops on how the authors write their books.

After the workshops, you will join us at an amazing Teen Party (6:15-8:00 pm) where you will mix and mingle with authors and there will be lots of free books and giveaways.

The $25 admission includes one young adult (up to 20 years old) plus a one chaperone whose name and contact information you must supply at the time of registration.

Find out all the details and see the list of  80+ authors attending here! Mark your calendars now — a chance like this doesn’t come along often!
