The NYC Teen Author Fest is BACK, and the Mulberry Street Library is happy to host a panel with some of your favorite authors on Monday, March 18th at 6 p.m.! The panel's title is "I'll Take You There: A Change of Scenery, A Change of Self" and will focus on characters getting pushed into new places and forced to revel their true selves. Sounds pretty great! Take a look at the authors that are stopping by!
Gayle Forman broke our hearts with the novel If I Stay, the story of a girl who loses her family in a car accident and has to decide while she is in a coma if she will let go and be with her family or stay and face the world on her own. Her latest book, Just One Day is the story of an American girl who takes a leap of faith and decides to spend a year in Europe.
Kristen-Paige Madonia's novel Fingerprints of You is about a pregnant seventeen year old who travels to San Francisco to meet the father she never knew.
Bennett Madison is known for his great mystery series featuring a fabulous teen detective named Lulu Dark. His latest book, September Girls is a summer romance between a regular guy, Sam, and an unusual girl named DeeDee that pushes him out of his comfort zone.
Jennifer E. Smith is the author of one of my personal favorite teen romances, The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight. Her latest book, You Are Here, is about a girl who takes a road trip in an effort to find out who she really is after she finds out that she had a twin brother that died shortly after they were born.
Melissa Walker made her mark thanks to the super popular series about teen modeling starting with Violet on the Runway. Her latest book, Unbreak my Heart is about a girl who is not excited to go on a sailing trip with her family, she is more focused on the mistakes she made that lead to a rift between her and her best friend.
The program will be moderated by the incomparable David Levithan.
