Geektown for Teens

We are hard on building up our Geektown activities for the 2018 Book Festival! Please check back soon for updates…

Are you a teenager planning on being at the San Antonio Book Festival on April 7? Or are you the parent of teenagers who love to read? Or a teacher with teenage students who devour books?

Well, take it from us — you are going to love GEEKTOWN, the Book Festival’s cool and exclusive area where young adult readers can spend the day. Check it out!

The Authors

In the H-E-B Coates Chapel at the Southwest School of Art and at Geektown HQ, we will feature author presentations and panels discussing interesting topics in YA literature with some of the bestselling authors in YA lit. Following the authors’ presentations, you can purchase a book from Barnes & Noble and then meet the author to get your book signed!

Take a look at our 2018 young adult lineup:

Holly Black (The Cruel Prince)
Daniel Chacon (The Cholo Tree)
Claudia Gray (Defy the Worlds)
Naomi Shihab Nye (Voices in the Air)
Jason Reynolds (For Every One)
Benjamin Alire Sáenz (The Inexplicable Logic of My Life)
Erika L. Sánchez (I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter)
Neal Shusterman (Thunderhead)
Martin Wilson (We Now Return to Regular Life)

 We hope to see you in Geektown on April 7!
