Teen Authors in Town.

The next couple of weeks will be a boon for teen author visits in St. Louis.  With the Yalsa Symposium taking place over the weekend of Nov 3-4, there is no shortage of opportunities for teens to hear some great authors talk.

Starting with Vaunda Micheaux Nelson @ Buder on Wednesday, November 1st from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m.  Vaunda Nelson makes history come alive.  When she talks about Bad News for Outlaws: The Remarkable Life of Bass Reeves, U.S. Marshall (winner of the Coretta Scott King Author Award), she dresses the part – boots, cowboy hat, badge . . . even handcuffs.


Then, on Monday, November 5th @ Cabanne from 9:30 – 10:30 am, Greg Neri will talk about his books.  Award-winning author of Yummy, Chess Rumble, Surf Mules, and Ghetto Cowboy, will be talking, answer questions, and signing books.

And finally, our Read It Forward author, Andrew Smith, will be @ Carpenter on Wednesday, November 5th from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m.  The author of Ghost Medicine will speak, meet fans, and sign copies of his books.  Andrew Smith’s other award-winning novels, The Marbury Lens, Passenger, Stick,  and In the Path of Falling Objects will be available for purchase courtesy of Left Bank Books.

This is a great chance for teens to meet and speak to some great authors.  Also, don’t forget you can pick up a copy of Ghost Medicine, or The Marbury Lens for free from your local St. Louis Public Library, while supplies last.
