RT Convention: Teen Day!

Most big, fancy book events and signings are held in places like California or New York. And if a certain blogger in Michigan wants to attend said events and signings, she has to cough up an obscene amount of money. But it's so worth it because book people are the best people in the world and I always have an amazing time with my blogger/librarian/author friends. That's why I've been so grumpy and depressed that I'd have to miss BEA this year. BUT THEN I learned about the Romantic Times convention in Chicago and its TEEN DAY.

50+ YA authors including Stephenie Perkins, Beth Revis, Cynthia Hand and VERONICA EFFING ROTH. And according to Twitter, the majority of the amazing people I met at BEA last year will be attending as well. BONUS.

And since Chicago is just a hop, skip and jump away (more like a three hour train ride followed by a three hour car ride ...) I AM SO GOING. Will I be seeing any of you there? Let me know!

  1. I'll be there! I'm only an hour and a half a way so I'm super excited that there's going to be an event nearby my house!

  2. I was planning on attending, but I couldn't get the time off from work, and it's not worth flying out from Colorado for just the Saturday..:( Maybe next year!:)

  3. I know this isn't the point of your post, but OMG! I'm from the Mitten State too!

    I wish I would have known about this event sooner. I could have made it happen for me!

  4. Awesome, Katie! Hope to meet you there! :)

    Nina, yeah, I'm pretty bummed that I'll be there for just the day but it's not super expensive for me to get there so I'm willing to spend the money. Depending on where it is, I might go next year as well!

    Jackie, YAY MICHIGAN! What area are you in? I'm by Detroit. And there's still about two months left to plan! :)
