This Saturday me and Scott and some other illustrious young adult literature types will be talking about our books and life (and the superiority of zombies over unicorns) and anything else you care to ask us about at a teen literary festival in Humble, Texas:
Saturday, 24 February, 2007
Humble ISD Libraries’
Teen Lit Festival 07
Guests are: Chris Crutcher, Gail Giles,
Justine Larbalestier, Benjamin Alíre Sáenz,
Scott Westerfeld and Chris Yambar
Atascocita High School Campus
The event is open to the public so if you’re anywhere in the vicinity do come and say hi. Even if you’re not into mine or Scott’s books, it’ll be totally worth it just to hear Chris Crutcher‘s keynote address. He’s an incredible, awe-inspiring speaker. I heard him last year and he made me cry. (In a good way.)
Instructions for getting there can be found here.
I’m really looking forward to it for several reasons such as Scott’s uncle is a
headmaster principal there and this means we get to hang out with him and his lovely family, also I may get to meet Chris Crutcher (I hope I don’t make a fool of myself!), I’ve never been to Houston, I’m looking forward to meeting certain fans I hear are coming all the way from Austin, and because it’s warm down there. Proper, over-20C warmth. I’m so happy just thinking about it!
*And I don’t mean the street just south of me here in NYC.))
