Greetings readers and the reading-curious!

I’ll be in fabulous NYC this week to take part in David Levithan’s NYC Teen Author Festival. For those of you who don’t know David, he’s the genius who delivered Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games to the world.

As part of the general celebration of all things dystopian, I’ll be speaking on a panel called Things Fall Apart: World Building and World Destroying in YA, along with other dystopian YA authors, Anna Carey, Sarah Beth Durst, Jeff Hirsch, Andy Marino, Lissa Price, and Jon Skovron. Chris Shoemaker will moderate. Come and test your knowledge of popular dystopian themes!

Where: New York Public Library, 42nd Street Branch, Bergen Forum

When: Wednesday, March 28 from 6PM to 8PM

Why: Because when the blank hits the blank, you really want to be ready.

I’ll also be reading at the Kipp Academy on Thursday but I think you have to be a student there to attend, so maybe you can just read to yourself that day.

Here’s a full schedule of events featuring some of the top YA authors of the moment.

Come and be inspired!
