Teen Author Reading Night: Summer 2015

Once again, the season conjures a terrific slate of authors for your pleasure! As always, each event takes place between 6:00pm and 7:30pm of the night in question, at the Jefferson Market Branch of the New York Public Library, located at the corner of 6th Avenue and 10th Street.

Pay particular attention to the night of July 1, when a certain someone will be reading from his new book. Also, be sure to be there on August 5, for a terrific line-up, including Paul Griffin (reading from Adrift, which you have preordered, right?), Gordon Korman, and Jon Skovron. Always a good time when those guys are around.
