Texans! We are delighted to remind you that we will be in Austin, Texas, this Saturday, November 2 to take part in Forever Fest at the Alamo Drafthouse. We’ll be doing two things there — one for books, one for SHENANIGANS — in case you have time to come visit:
1) Book panel: At 2:15 p.m. on November 2, we’re doing a YA-related chat alongside Megan “Jessica Darling or, rather, MARCUS FLUTIE” McCafferty and the hilarious Kirsten Smith, who has a new YA novel out but whom you probably already worship because she wrote Legally Blonde, 10 Things I Hate About You, and She’s the Man. We will be signing books after the chat (they will also be available for purchase). The panel itself is free, BUT if you want to reserve a seat ahead of time, tickets are available right now, TODAY, for $5, and you can redeem them for food or drink at the Drafthouse. DO IT!
2) Sixteen Candles party and costume contest: After Forever Fest’s screening of Sixteen Candles, there will be an ’80s dance party at the ballroom of the Stephen F. Austin hotel at 9 p.m., complete with a Jake Ryan photobooth — how can you resist? We will ALSO be there to judge the ’80s costume contest, so go find that bubble skirt and show up!
Here is the rest of the Forever Fest schedule — it’s full of fun stuff — but if we’re the two broads you might want to see, those are your best bets (along with whatever fine margaritas purveyors you can recommend, of course.) Please come out and see us, Texas!
