Got plans for the evening of next Thursday, the 13th? I can help.
From 6:30 to 9 at Austin’s BookPeople, there will be local children’s and YA authors and illustrators out the wazoo:
Cynthia Leitich Smith
Jane Ann Peddicord
Greg Leitich Smith
P.J. “Tricia” Hoover
Besides a meet-and-greet, there’ll be a holiday reading as well as separate panel discussions for picture books, middle grade, and YA.
And if that’s not enough, rumor has it that a not-quite-published author will have a daylight-fluorescent sample of his first book so fresh from the printer’s press that they haven’t even had time to bind it…
