Young adult authors: big draw at Book Fair - Books - Miami Herald.com
Saturday is a great day to attend the Miami Book Fair, especially if you are a fan of the Young Adult genre. Connie Ogle sets the stage for the Saturday Young adult authors: big draw at Book Fair, revealing that there are 32 teen/’tween authors at this year’s fair, ranging from two-time Eisner Award winner and comics guru Paul Pope to novelist Lauren Oliver, author of the Delirium series. I am obviously partial to mentioning that Palmetto Bay’s Alex Flinn will be on two panels, at 1:30 and 4:00 p.m. tomorrow, Saturday, 11/23/13
