Last year, I attended this virtual, online event and let me tell you, it’s fun to be able to participate online. No travel! No security checks! No living out of a suitcase!

The line up is at the SLJ SummerTeen website;  and I want to point out something extra wonderful. Well, to me at least.

See the Historical Fantasy Program?

Historical Fantasy

Deb Noyes, Plague in the Mirror (Candlewick)

Robin LaFevers, Dark Triumph (HMH) (My review of Grave Mercy, the first book in this series)

Elizabeth Wein, The Winter Prince (Open Road)

Sharon Cameron, The Dark Unwinding (Scholastic) (My review)

I will be moderating that! What is historical fantasy, you ask? Why, I guess to find out you have to attend!

That, and it’s free!

  1. Cool! I’ve read and loved the middle two already. Will have to check out the others. Thanks for the reminder about the program!

    I only have one left to read, the Deb Noyes book. All of them are great!
