I had a great day at the library. There was reading out loud and clapping and raucous laughter... basically, this ain't your Grandma's Library, this is New York Fucking City....The NYC Teen Author Festival to be precise.
I got to hear Holly Black, Cassandra Clare, Alaya Johnson, Justine Larbalestier, David Levithan, Diana Peterfreund, and Scott Westerfeld read some of the stuff they wrote as teens. In the audience I spied Coe Booth (my favoritest) and Eliot Schrefer, who were there to support the panelists. I love the YA world. I really look forward to celebrating the successes of my talented New School classmates and going to see them speak on panels.
