    Books

    Texas Teen Book Festival

    Getcher YA-YAs out, we might suggest, in the sense that YA of course refers to Young Adult, a marketing term used by booksellers, a marketing term that some folks insist means novels that usually aren't as goddamn boring as regular adult novels, and so where else will you be this Saturday? Unless you're enrolled in Hogwarts and can't skip that Dark Arts class; unless all of Panem is riveted to your every gambit of survival; unless you're anxious about missing the latest episode of Oh? Wow! Thing!, citizen reader, this is where you'll be.
