One Last Reminder: Austin Teen Book Fest THIS Saturday

You guys, this is worth driving from Wichita to Austin because:

  • On Friday night there will be a screening of “Nick & Nora’s Ultimate Playlist” (at Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar) with a Q&A featuring festival author David Levithan, co-author of the book on which the film was based. BookPeople will be selling signed copies of his books in the lobby. The screening benefits the APLFF.
  • The festival’s theme is steam punk — a nod to keynote speaker Scott Westerfeld. There’s going to be a green screen where you can take pictures of yourself in the Leviathan world. On top of that, the entertainment will be courtesy of Delirium of Grandeur and the band Darwin Prophet, neither of which I’ve ever heard of, but are sure to be awesome.
  • The panels:

(click to embiggen…) There are some seriously fine authors talking about fascinating things.

  • And lastly but not leastly: Amanda and I are organizing a blogger luncheon — we don’t have a specific place to eat, but are planning on meeting at the Barton Springs Road entrance of the Palmer Events Center around 12:30.

Hope to see you there! It’s going to be a blast. Promise.
