RT TEEN DAY Is This Saturday 5/16/15 In Dallas, TX! #RT15 #RTTeenDay

Are you in Dallas this weekend? The RT (Romance Times) convention is in Dallas, TX this week. You might be wondering why I'd post about that here on a Teen Book Review blog. Well, RT isn't just for adult. RT has a TEEN side too! That's right, there are a ton of awesome YA authors in town for RT as well. They're all coming for TEEN DAY! Teen Day is this coming Saturday. Check out the details below:


The Teen Day excitement begins at 11am on Saturday, May 16 at the Giant Book Fair where you'll meet 100 Young Adult authors who will signing in YA Alley including: Meg Cabot, Tamora Pierce, Richelle Mead, Scott Westerfeld, Melissa de la Cruz, Margaret Sthol and Kami Garica, Kiera Cass, Allison Noel, Lauren Oliver, Becca Fitzpatrick and Jennifer L. Armentrout to name a few. It's also where you can purchase autographed copies of their latest books so be sure to bring an extra bag (or suitcase!).

The Teen Day program continues at 2pm, immediately following the Giant Book Fair, where Macmillan will be hosting a fun pizza party (from 2-3pm). This will be open to all who have purchased a Teen Day pass. At the party you'll meet several Macmillian authors and hundreds of fellow YA book lovers — a great way to kick off the Teen Day festivities to come.
After Macmillan's Pizza Party workshops begin promptly at 3pm with three concurrent sessions: from 3 - 4:15pm and 4:30 -  5:45pm. Click here for the full Teen Day workshop schedule.  
After the workshops, from 6-7:30pm, get ready for a fun-filled Teen Day party hosted by HarperTeen/Epic Reads and Penguin Teen where refreshments will be served along with tasty treats.  This is where fans can chat with the authors who were signing at the Giant Book Fair, all of whom are looking forward to meeting their fans. The first 500 teens who registered will receive a goody bag filled with YA books and swag as they enter the party. There will also be a YA Swag Room for fans to visit that will be filled with even more giveaways and books!
This is a not-to-be-missed event for Teens (and adults alike) who love YA fiction and the authors who write the wonderful stories.
COST: $30 includes one ticket, PLUS one chaperone whose name and contact information you must supply in your registration form. (Note: A chaperone ticket is only included if you are under 18. Anyone 18 and over does not need a chaperone.) TO REGISTER CLICK HERE
That's not all. If you've been following me on Twitter, you may have noticed I've been periodically posting about RT Teen Day giveaways. You may have even entered to win the giveaway I hosted here on the blog. That's because I'm the YA Teen Day Track Assistant this year. I'm so thrilled to be apart of all the amazing happenings going on for Teen Day. Be sure to follow us on the RT TEEN DAY Facebook page! We've posted a lot of news, giveaways and more there.
