Read Up, Greenville is a celebration of Young Adult and Middle Grades books and authors. There will be book sales, author signings, panel discussions, interactive experiences, and keynote speakers. The day will feature eleven panels specific to different themes as well as a makerspace.
Founded by the Tattered Cover Book Store in 2016, this is a full day event with a keynote presentation, a bunch of author panels, and a big author signing party at the end of the day. And food trucks. Of course, food trucks. Books will be for sale throughout the day.
The Oklahoma Teen Book Convention is dedicated to facilitating and celebrating the love of literature and lifelong learning by providing a multifaceted experience of diverse activities in an inclusive and accepting environment for Oklahoma youth ages 12 to 18.
Join two novelists for a creative writing workshop dedicated to helping you improve your craft. The two will join forces and share tips with teen writers during this two-hour evening workshop.
Mystery, romance, adventure—an author’s world is full of all these things. Young adult authors Donna Cooner and Katherine Longshore will share a candid look inside their paths to publication in this interactive presentation. They will discuss the powerful and the painful aspects of the creative process, succeeding in the face of rejection and finding your “tribe” of like-minded writers. Throughout, there will be writing opportunities to help you imagine your own writing life, find your “voice” and give real-life experiences and emotions to fictional characters. Come prepared to ask questions, find inspiration, and write!
