The NTTBF is this weekend and I’m so hyped because I can finally go this year! For those who are in the north Texas region, I would highly suggest considering on going. It’s on March 4th (Saturday) at the Irving Convention Center and there are going to be a whole bunch of middle-grade and young adult authors there. There are also going to be some BookTubers as well (Jesse from Jessethereader and Regan from PeruseProjects to only list a few)!
If you’re going, we might bump into each other, which would be awesome!
Don’t mind me if I become an awkward mess, though.
I’ve never been to this event before so I have no advice other than have fun and get there early.
Here is some general information:
The North Texas Teen Book Festival
Irving Convention Center,
500 W. Las Colinas Blvd.
Irving, TX 75039
Admission is free! However, parking is $5. There are going to be book sales as well as swag sold at the festival.
Tickets to meet Veronica Roth & R.L. Stine, tickets to go to certain events (Speed Dating books), and books start to sell at 8 a.m. I suggest to come earlier because I predict there’s going to be a fairly long line for those tickets. Book signings start at around 3:30 p.m. Once again, I suggest to go to the line early, especially if you want to maximize the number of authors you meet.
For every 1 book you buy at the festival, you can bring 2 from home. The books bought from the festival help keep the admission free. Once again, you need a ticket to meet Veronica Roth and/or R.L. Stine. All the little teeny tiny details are on the website.
One tip I got from a friend is to bring your own lunch. The concessions there are super pricey and the wait is really long. She suggested to save that money to buy more books. 😉
