events: upcoming author sighting--SLC area

There are so many great author events this month! Why? Because it's The Utah Humanities Book Festival this week and events are happening all over Utah. Click HERE for the main Festival page. You can click on cities all over Utah that are hosting events. I pretty much only care about YA books and authors, but there is a lot going on all week, mostly on Saturday, at the Main SL City Library.

So Saturday at the SL City Library at 11 there is a panel called "Debut YA authors speak on the differences and similarities of their new books." with Dan Wells, Lisa Mangum, and Kristen Chandler. Ann Cannon is speaking from 12:20-1:30 about her new book for young readers, The Chihuahua Chase. I think Ann Cannon is hilarious on her blog, which I love reading, so it would be fun to hear her speak though I probably wont be reading her new book--too young for my tastes. I've read her YA books and have enjoyed them.

Provo City Library is having their very first Teen Book Fest on Saturday October 30. It sounds so awesome! Eeek! Click HERE for details. HERE is a list of local authors attending. Scott Westerfeld is the keynote speaker, and though the tickets are all out, there will be a signing you can still attend. I think.

There are a lot of author sightings scheduled for The King's English over the next week. Here are a few that I'm interested in.
  • Julie Berry, author of The Amaranth Enchantment and Secondhand Charm, with Jessica Day George, Princess of the Midnight Ball and Dragon Slippers, tomorrow, Wednesday October 20 at 7pm
  •  Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, authors of Beautiful Creatures and Beautiful Darknessthis Thursday, October 21 at 7pm. Info is HERE
  • Kaleb Nation, author of the Bran Hambric series, will be next Tuesday, October 26 at 7pm. Info is HERE.
