Do you work with teens that love to read? Then you absolutely need to start planning to attend this year’s Teen Lit Con! (It’s a FREE event for teens!)
This year the event will be held Saturday May 12th from 10am – 4pm at Chaska High School. According to the Teen Lit Con site, “the purpose of this day is to celebrate teen literature, promote reading and writing, and to create a community of readers by connecting teens and authors.”
If that’s not enough, read this recap from Rogers High School Media Specialist Bethany Kauffman, which describes the joy of last year’s event, along with some awesome pictures.
And finally…the authors this year are fantastic! Authors at this year’s event include:
- Angie Thomas, author of The Hate U Give
- Melissa de la Cruz, author of Because I Was a Girl
- Adam Silvera author of They Both Die at the End
- Barry Lyga, author of Bang
- and more!!
We hope you are able to share this event with your students/teen patrons and encourage them to take part in this fantastic, FREE day of YA literature!
