2011 NYC Teen Author Festival

I’ve been invited back to the NYC Teen Author Festival this year! Somewhat surprising, given the madness that ensued during our “Inside the Mind of a Teenage Boy” panel last year at the Tribecca B&N (favorite moment, Barry Lyga saying “You can’t handle the mind of a teenage boy!”). But hey, it’s a teen author festival. Gotta keep it edgy, I guess.

I will be reading at the YA Rocks, featuring Tiger Beat! panel:

Wednesday, March 16, 6:00 - 8:00

NYPL 42nd Street Branch, South Court

Here’s the line lineup…

Wow. Righteous Babe or what?
