NYC Author Event Video Footage!

Okay so last Friday I attended the NYC Teen Author Festival Symposium. I had so much fun! For those of you who couldn't make it I made sure to take some videos & pics, so it'll be just like you were there :) The whole event was hosted by David Levithan, who was hysterical!

In this first video, the panel are all authors that use genre to tell the true story of adolescence:
Lauren McLaughlin
Sarah Beth Durst
Judy Blundell
Sara Shepard
Robin Wasserman
Diana Peterfreund
Maggie Stiefvater

In this video, I recorded Sarah Shepard reading out of the latest Pretty Little Liars book & Robin Wasserman reading out of Skinned. Sorry for being a moron and holding the camera wrong, but I realize it midway through a lot of these videos hehe.

Ahhh Maggie Stiefvater clip:

Wow thanks so much for sharing this! I was almost going to go and then didn't at the last minute--slightly exhausted from the trekking to NY for the Sourcebooks Party the night before. So glad you posted these!
