Who we are
TeenBookCon is a volunteer committee made up of librarians, teachers, and other lovers of young adult literature, who come together at monthly planning meetings to make sure that our annual event day, held in March or April each year, is a fantastic opportunity for teens from the greater Houston area and beyond to meet their favorite authors and discover new authors.
