North Texas Teen Book Festival (NTTBF) takes place March 23 at the Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas, 500 W. Las Colinas Blvd. In late 2018, NTTBF organizers announced that Raina Telgemeier, author and illustrator of graphic novels Smile, Drama, Sisters, Ghosts and many other beloved works, will be this year’s Middle Grade Keynote speaker. NTTBF will also feature Tomi Adeyemi (Children of Blood and Bone) and Tahereh Mafi (Shatter Me series and A Very Large Expanse of Sea) as Young Adult Keynote presenters.
The 2019 event includes a wide assortment of new and returning bestselling authors, such as Becky Albertalli (What If It’s Us co-written with Adam Silvera), Alexandra Bracken (The Last Life of Prince Alastor and The Darkest Minds ) and Sarah Mlynowski (Whatever After).
Keep your eyes peeled for more NTTBF stories featuring the library's holdings on the complete author list's newest works and the addition of popular BookTube panelists in the coming weeks! Less than three months remains until the region's largest teen book fest returns. Where will you be on March 23?
