This past Saturday I attended Houston’s annual Teen Book Con, where I got to hang out with some of my favorite bookish friends and see/meet some incredible authors.
This was my second time attending and it was just as great. I can honestly say that I will attend Teen Book Con for as long as they have them.
I got to sit in a few great panels! My favorite were:
|ADULTS ARE OVERRATED
Orson Scott Card
Out of these two groups, Ruta Sepetys story about her research for writing Between Shades of Gray was the most memorable and moving. She describe how she signed up to take part in a simulation experience in a former Soviet prison, where they didn’t hold back because she was a woman. She was beaten, y’all! CRAZY! I was almost in tears listening to her story.
Aside from that very moving moment, there were mostly laughs all. day. LONG! I did get a couple of pictures, thanks to my friend Lena of Addicted 2 Novels, and lots of signed books! Take a look!
