Penguin Teen on Tour, DFW Stop
Penguin Teen on Tour, DFW Stop//
On Tuesday, The Teen and I were able to catch the Penguin Teen on Tour stop at the Dallas Half-Price Books store. Authors on this stop included Alison Goodman (THE DARK DAYS CLUB), Sabaa Tahir (AN EMBER IN THE ASHES), Rachel Hawkins (The Rebel Belle series), April Genevieve Tucholke ( WINK, POPPY, MIDNIGHT) and Alwyn Hamilton (REBEL OF THE SANDS). I tried to tweet as many of the profound things these ladies were saying, and those tweets are shared below. I certainly didn’t catch everything, and there are some typos, but it was a really fun and fascinating discussion of everything from strong women in YA to the most troubling things these authors have researched. Let’s just say there was lots of talk about death and dying.
