Teen Book Bash
Saturday, June 15, 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm
A panel of five authors discuss and sign copies of their newest books followed by a teens-only party with the authors after library hours. Led by author Claire Legrand (“Furyborn,” “Some Kind of Happiness,” “Foxheart” and others), the panel includes Kacen Callender (“This Is Kind of an Epic Love Story”), Alex London (“Black Wings Beating”), Mark Oshiro (“Anger is a Gift”) and Swati Teerdhala (“The Tiger at Midnight”).
Readers of all ages are welcome to attend the panel discussion in the Community Room starting at 4:30 pm. Claire Legrand will moderate the panel and there will be time to ask the authors questions. A book signing will follow the panel discussion with Labyrinth Books on hand to provide books from all the authors.
Starting at 6 p.m., the authors and library staff will host an after-hours party on the third floor. Rising 7th graders and above will get a chance to hang out and chat with the authors while enjoying a make-your-own-sundae station and other treats. We will host a variety of activities with each author leading a team. An author selfie station along with other surprises and games will round out the event.
Registration is required for the after party and is limited to 40 so to be sure to sign up early. The party will be from 6-7:30 p.m.
