This year’s @TeenBookCon festival has been canceled due to public health concerns around COVID-19.
We’re so grateful for all of our partners—from the Cy-Fair school district to all of the librarians, publishers, and authors—who have worked so hard to plan this event. We were thrilled with this year’s author lineup, and it breaks our hearts that we won’t be seeing you in April.
The mission of the festival is to connect young readers with authors. We no longer feel that we can safely do that at a large, in-person event. However, canceling the festival significantly affects the wonderful authors who agreed to come to town.
TeenBookCon has always been a place for authors to reach new readers and form meaningful connections. So, please—read these books! Share them widely. Follow our authors on social media.
We’re working with our publisher partners to provide signed bookplates from our TeenBookCon authors. While we can’t make any guarantees, we’ll do our best to get you a signed bookplate, while supplies last, if you order any of the books from this page:
We’re also working on a few more ways to connect these authors with you, our wonderful Houston community. Watch this space for updates in the days and weeks to come.
Finally, get ready for TeenBookCon next year. We're already planning, and we'll be back better than ever.
If you have any questions or feedback, please reach out—you can reply to this thread directly, or call Blue Willow Bookshop at (281) 497-8675.
