Montgomery County Teen Book Festival

Greg and I had a great time at the first-ever Montgomery County Teen Book Festival in The Woodlands, Texas on Saturday.

It was a star-studded event featuring Lois Duncan as the keynote speaker along with National Book Award winner Kimberly Willis Holt, YA star Alex Flinn (whose Nothing To Lose was a recent BBYA and Quick Pick), living legend Vivian Vande Velde (who I just interviewed on spookycyn), Printz Honor Author Terry Truman, and author/librarian/goddess/gurus Teri Lesesne (author of Making The Match: The Right Book For The Right Reader At The Right Time) and Michele Gorman (author of Getting Graphic! Using Graphic Novels to Promote Literacy with Preteens and Teens).

The hosts and students were a delight, smart and sparkling, glowing with enthusiasm and Texas hospitality. This conference has all the early makings of a winner. Thanks so much for including us!
