Teen Book Con Houston 2014

What an AMAZING day Teen Book Con was.  This past Saturday, here in Houston, a bunch of Young Adult authors came to hang with me & a few hundred more readers to share their stories & writing experiences.  I love these events because they're for teens.  The amount of young readers who came out (ON A SATURDAY!) to meet their favorite authors and celebrate reading was so awesome to see.  As a future teacher, who plans to continue promoting reading in her classroom one day, this really warmed my heart.

I visited four different panels through out the day, and got a chance to listen to authors speak about their writing inspirations, what their favorite books are, and the most amazing bit of speech: advice to today's teenagers :)  Below is a snap shot, in case you missed some of my tweets that day, that I wanted to share again.  I've also included some photos I took with a few of my favorite authors after the event.

If you're ever in the Houston area in April, I HIGHLY recommend checking out this event.  This was my third time to attend, and it just keeps getting better and better each year.

To learn more about this event, please visit the TEEN BOOK CON website.


  1. I love this! You look adorable too! Thanks for sharing.

  2. This event always looks so fun! One of these days I'm going to conveniently plan a trip to Texas so I can go and hang with you guys!! Really enjoyed your coverage of this on Twitter that day!

  3. Ah! Teen Book Con looks like it was so much fun! I love seeing all your tweets in this post, and you shared some very great tidbits from these authors. I'm thinking I might have to find a way to fly out to Texas in time for the next one ;)

  4. Sounds great and the pictures look like you had a blast. ~sheri
