TEENBOOKCON: GREATER HOUSTON TEEN BOOK CONVENTION

Mission: To celebrate and promote reading by connecting teens with authors.

The goals of the TeenBookCon are to:
•    Connect teen readers to local and national authors and illustrators
•    Educate, enrich, inform, and entertain local teens and other participants
•    Promote literacy skills
•    Encourage interaction between aspiring writers and established authors
•    Celebrate the educational and recreational benefits of teen reading
   
Who will come?
•    The target audience is teens who are in grades 7 - 12
•    We welcome teachers, librarians, parents, and other advocates for teen literacy attending with their teens
•    The Festival will be promoted throughout the greater Houston area at public libraries, schools, and other youth oriented agencies  

How will the Festival work?
•    Author and illustrator presentations 
•    Five 40-minute breakout sessions allowing smaller groups to interact directly with the authors and illustrators
•    Signing and book/t-shirt sales with the authors and illustrators

How much financial support is needed?
Approximately $5,000 - $10,000 is needed for this event.  This budget covers:
•    Author’s travel costs (airfare or driving costs)
•    Lodging and meals for invited authors and illustrators
•    Publicity and other necessary support materials (advertising costs, posters, bookmarks, fliers, signage, t-shirts for volunteers, etc.)

Why become a TeenBookCon Partner?
•    Teens and the entire community will benefit from the generosity and vision of those that believe this event is worthy of participation and support
•    This is a visible event – reaching throughout Harris County and surrounding areas.  Partners will be clearly thanked and prominently displayed on all promotional and Festival materials    
•    Partners will be seen as being supportive of libraries, the communities they serve, and the youth that are the futures of those communities
