The Texas Teen Book Festival will take place on Saturday, Oct. 18 from 8:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. on the campus of St. Edward’s University and will be jam-packed with author sessions, book signings, vendors and more. This free festival will feature 29 authors, including James Dashner, author of The Maze Runner series and Lauren Oliver, creator of the bestselling Delirium series and Before I Fall.

“This year’s Festival is THE one to attend,” says librarian and Fest founder Heather Schubert. “You’ll find amazing keynotes, interactive events, writing workshops, a hilarious game show, and much, much more. Expect to leave with a list of new favorite authors and a stack of books you can’t wait to read!”

The popular Texas Throwdown Game Show, taking place from 9:40 – 10:20 a.m., is a high-energy competition with teams of authors led by Marie Lu (The Young Elites) and Paolo Bacigalupi (The Doubt Factory).
