Upcoming Book Events

Do you live in Texas? Here's some upcoming YA book events in Texas to add to you calendar!

Teen Book Con of Houston is tomorrow (Saturday April 9th) from 9-4. Authors in attendance are Deb Caletti, Andrea Cremer, Ellen Hopkins, Joy Preble, Rachel Hawkins, Stephanie Perkins, and more! The event is free but you must purchase a book at the event to get into the signing lines.

The Texas Library Association Conference is April 12-15th here in Austin. There are too many amazing authors to list, so click here to see the full list. You can buy a $25 exhibit pass at the event and it will get you into the exhibit hall where authors will be signing books and publishers will be giving away books. I went to this even last year and it was epic.

The Austin Teen Book Festival will be Saturday, October 1st. Authors attending are Scott Westerfeld, Maureen Johnson, Mary Pearson, Gabrielle Zevin and more being announced soon. I attended as a volunteer last year and it is one of the most organized events I've ever been to. Check back for more info!

I'll continue to blog about various Texas book events, but for more up-to-date info go to Facebook and 'like' Literary Lonestars. Literary Lonestars is a page we set up to help us keep in touch with other Texas bloggers and keep track of various book events happening all across the state. We do giveaways from time to time, so check us out! (And you don't have to be from Texas to 'like' us!)


  1. I will be at TLA 2011! So excited! I will also be at The Austin Teen Book Festival. So sad I can't make it to Teen Book Con. Hope to see you there!


  2. Why couldn't I have picked this week to visit my family in Texas?
