Tickets are now available for the Less Than Three YA Lit/Anti-Bullying conference! I’ll be speaking there on a panel, along with YA authors Heather Brewer (who will give the keynote address), Ellen Hopkins, A.S. King, Jennifer Brown, Lisa McMann, David Levithan, Carrie Jones, Carrie Ryan, and more! AND four local authors–Jody Feldman, Antony John, Sarah Bromley and Cole Gibson–will be moderating the panels. What a fantastic group of YA authors, eh? 🙂
We’ll be talking about bullying (which many of us personally experienced), YA lit and bullying, anti-LGBT bullying. We haven’t finalized the topics yet, but they’ll all be about bullying. I was bullied a lot as a child and teen, as well as being an abuse survivor. It’s something I care about!
Tickets are only $10, and will include all four panels, keynote speech, autograph session, and a social hour with the authors. You’ll also get a tote bag with some goodies focused on bullying. I think this will be an important conference. I hope you’ll join us. Tickets are limited, so if you’re thinking about going, you might want to sign up soon.
Our conference–which the wonderful Heather Brewer started and organized–has been mentioned in Publishers Weekly, Saint Louis’ Riverfront Times, and Heather Brewer was just interviewed by The New York Times, as well. I’m looking forward to this!
