And at 8pm that night, I’ll be reading from THE FORGETTING at Shades & Shadows as part of Litfest Pasadena. This event is FREE!

LA Times Festival of Books
I was honored to moderate an amazing panel on the YA Stage at the LA Times Festival of Books. LATFOB is the biggest book festival in Southern California,

Ontario Teen Book Festival 2016
For years I’d heard about OTBF and it absolutely lived up to the hype. What an incredible book festival! If you are in the SoCal area in March, you must check it out. One of the best days of my writing life! AND we sold out of books!
