I’m delighted to be on a YA panel again this year at the LA Times Festival of Books. And this time I will not be on the YA Stage (where the wind almost blew over our high directors chairs last year) but indoors at the Norris Theater! The seating will be more comfortable for all of us, but you’ll have to remember to get a free ticket.
I am the debut author on this panel of rockstars with many books, as you’ll see below. I’m thrilled because not only will they ensure a nice crowd, but I look forward to meeting these smart, creative women, including our talented moderator.
If you’re thinking of coming, see below on how to get tickets for the inside events.
|4:00 p.m.||Young Adult Fiction: The Outer Limits
|Moderator: Kerri Majors|
1. Free Conversation Tickets will be available online starting Sunday, April 14, 9 a.m. There is a $1 service fee applied to each ticket reserved. This is how I always used to attend. I don’t think the link is up yet – http://events.latimes.com/festivalofbooks/
2. Free on-site Conversation Tickets
A limited amount of tickets for each Conversation, while supplies last, are also distributed on site at the Festival of Books ticketing booth on the day of the Conversation — free of service charges. Visit booth #464. (note: tickets are not guaranteed this way)

There will be a signing immediately after. If I remember correctly, you can bring books from home for signing. Vendors will also be selling the books on site, and you’ll want to get them anytime before the panel. I also got my publisher to print up new, free chapter samplers that I will give and sign for people in my line, so come to my line even if you don’t have a book.
This is my only LA appearance planned until at least mid-summer, so I hope to see you there!
