Teenreads Monthly Update

In our last update, I mentioned that I would be heading to BookEpo, a major event where publishing professionals discuss new books and book trends, to moderate the Young Adult Author Buzz panel. ICYMI, the Buzz program is one of the most exciting parts of BEA for its ability to launch new books that the committee believes will resonate with readers in 2017. This year’s Young Adult Buzz Authors are graphic novelist Tillie Walden for SPINNING (September); debut fantasy author Tochi Onyebuchi for BEASTS MADE OF NIGHT (October); the amazing Samantha Mabry for her second book, ALL THE WIND IN THE WORLD (October); award-winning journalist Dashka Slater for THE 57 BUS: A True Story of Two Teenagers and the Crime That Changed Their Lives (October); and beautiful newcomer Nic Stone for DEAR MARTIN (October).
