Teen Book Bash

June 30, 2018, 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

A panel of six authors discuss and sign copies of their newest books followed by a teen-only party with the authors after library hours.

Led by author Megan McCafferty, (the Jessica Darling series), the panel includes Cordelia Jensen (“Every Shiny Thing”, co-written with Laurie Morrison; “The Way the Light Bends” and “Skyscraping”), Laurie Morrison (Every Shiny Thing, co-written with Cordelia Jensen; the upcoming “Up for Air”), Emily X.R. Pan (“The Astonishing Color of After”), Nisha Sharma (“My So-Called Bollywood Life”), Claire Legrand (“Furyborn”, “Some Kind of Happiness”, “Foxheart” and others); and Anica Mrose  Rissi (“Always Forever Maybe”).

All ages of readers are welcome to attend the panel discussion that will happen in the Community Room starting at 4:30 pm. Megan McCafferty 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 selling books from all the authors.

Starting at 6 pm 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 pizza, a make-your-own-sundae station and other treats. We will host a book trivia competition featuring questions from beloved books with each author leading a team.  An author selfie station along with other surprises and games will round out the book bash. Be sure to register early as the author party has a registration limit and you will not want to miss out on the fun.

Registration (limited to 40) required for the after party, which will be from 6-7:30 p.m.
