I am incredibly, ridiculously, unreasonably excited to be heading to YallFest this weekend! I’ve only been to Charleston once, for my good friend’s bachelorette party (think matching black dresses and a pink limo) so the bar is high, but I have a feeling this weekend will be even more epic. Because, BOOKS. And readers. And getting to hang out with all my favorite authors!! Enough said.
If you’re coming to YallFest this weekend, I would love to see you! Here’s my Saturday schedule:
10 AM—signing at Blue Bicycle Books
12 PM—Criminals & Detectives Panel, American Theater
Finally, a panel about rule-breakers versus rule-moderators! I’ll be there with Kami Garcia, Caleb Roehrig, and my friend Sara Shepard, so it should be tons of fun. I’m sure I’ll touch on all kinds of topics… like Leda, forbidden love, Spokes, Mariel…
3 PM—Epic Reads Author Meet-Up, the American Theater
Come get your books signed by me, Becky Albertalli, Zac Brewer, Dhonielle Clayton, Angie Thomas, and Lauren Oliver!
5 PM—Panel, Past and Future, American Theater
This is definitely going to be a highlight. Cinda Williams Chima, Ryan Graudin, S.J. Kincaid, Grady Hendrix, Kiera Cass, and I will chat about writing stories set in future, past, twisted, or overall just crazy worlds!
6 PM—YA Smackdown, Charleston Music Hall
I’m part of the Smackdown this year! I don’t know anything about it except that I’m going to be onstage (eek!) and it’s a surprise. Cue nervousness… 😉
And that’s it! I hope I get to see you guys! I’ll be there with The Thousandth Floor themed flashtats and my favorite cowboy boots, so come find me for a signed book or a quick hi!!
