Archives - Teenreads Monthly Update

Last week was the 10th anniversary of the New York City Teen Author Festival, NYC's biggest event devoted solely to YA, which is held over the course of a week and features panels, readings and a mega-signing. On Friday, I attended the Symposium, a four-hour-long program full of tons of author appearances.

"March Madness" has definitely been the theme of the YA book world this month. In addition to one major YA book announcement, March has given us debut author Tomi Adeyemi's CHILDREN OF BLOOD AND BONE hitting #1 on the New York Times Best Seller list, two YA adaptations in theaters and the nominees for the Excellence in Graphic Literature Awards.
