Yeah yeah, I know, that’s a long time. The author list doesn’t even come out until November or December, so why are you bringing it up now?
Wait. Okay, let me backtrack. You don’t know what I’m talking about, do you?
The North Texas Teen Book Festival is a yearly event in Irving, Texas. A bunch of authors show up (like, 50+ of ’em) and they get put in groups for decisions based around their books. And we get to watch! Admission is free, AND they do book signings afterwards (also free).
Some reasonable famous authors have showed up in the past. So. Great.
I have a crazy amount of books signed because of this. Wanna see?
The book where you can’t see the spines I got signed elsewhere. So yeah, it’s a pretty decent portion of my collection.
Now, the reason I’m bringing this up so early is because they have some volunteer options to help get things ready starting this November. You can get some book swag and volunteer hours and meet other book lovers.
You can find the details at http://www.northtexasteenbookfestival.com/bffs/
In the coming months I’ll be sure to update you on the NTTBF, but until then, hope to see you in Irving!
