If you’re looking for your literary kicks in Austin this Saturday, you might want to get yourself down to BookPeople at 1 p.m. for “Delacorte Dames & Dude: Everything you wanted to know about young adult fiction but were too afraid to ask.”

Here’s the skinny:

The panel discussion features the Delacorte Dames and Dudes, five authors of young adult (YA) novels. They are all published by Delacorte Press, Random House and they all live right here in Austin! Delacorte Dames are April Lurie, author of The Latent Powers of Dylan Fontaine (2008), Jennifer Ziegler, How Not to Be Popular (2008), Margo Rabb, Cures for Heartbreak (2007), and Shana Burg, A Thousand Never Evers (2008). The lone Delacorte Dude is Varian Johnson, whose novel Saving Maddie is forthcoming in 2010. The panel will be moderated by Austin’s own, Sarah Bird. Join us for what is sure to be an enlightening and lively discussion.
