The “LibraryPalooza, That Author Thing!” will be held from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 21 at Brandeis HS. The teen Author Fest will include authors James Dashner, Carl Deuker, Laura Lee Gulledge, D.J. MacHale, Mary Pearson, Jenny Han, and Siobbhan Vivian.
“This is an amazing line-up of award winning authors who are well-known and loved by millions of teen readers,” says Lucy Podmore, librarian at Hector Garcia MS.
Attendees will have the opportunity to purchase books on site (or bring from home) and have them signed by the authors. Although geared toward middle and high school students, the event is open to anyone. There is no cost for the event and no advanced registration is required.
Food will be provided for purchase (cash only) including food trucks during the lunch break in the back bus loop. A percentage of all sales will go to Friends of Northside Libraries.
The program is made possible in part by contributions from the Northside Libraries, and is sponsored by the Friends of Northside Libraries.
