There was good food, awesome music and amazing giveaways at the second annual Teen Day party. All over the room teens were trading the new reads that were tucked in their goody bags, snagging authors to sign books and of course, making new friends. At the party in addition to the giveaway bags that were stuffed to overflowing, there were also several scavenger hunts, a makeup station and, of course, authors. If you weren’t able to join us at the event, here’s a snapshot of what went on!
Everywhere you looked fans were chatting about the books we all love. Teens came from miles away to celebrate our second annual teen day. One young reader and her mother took an 11-hour train trip to join us in Chicago. And locals were out in full force too.
The room was high-energy as readers and authors mixed. YA fan Chelsea summed up the mood in the room perfectly when she said that her favorite part of the event was getting to talk to authors because, as she said it, “They are like rockstars!”
And what did some lucky readers learn about the books that they love (and what’s ahead for some of their favorite authors)? Well, there’s no predicting what a YA author will say next, that’s for sure!
