Love YA? Dying to get to know a few great authors better? Now is your chance!

Our client, Blink YA Books, a teen division of HarperCollins, is celebrating Teen Read Week in serious style.

October 18 – 24 fans will have a chance to connect with authors about writing, reading and, of course, young adult books!

On the Blink Teen Read Week Digital Tour you can join authors for a Twitter Chat or watch them live chat in a Google Hangout. For a few select schools, students will even have some of the authors Skyping in for a visit!

What’s Teen Read Week?

Teen Read Week is a nationwide celebration of books created for teens. This tour is just one great way you can participate in the event. Make sure to celebrate the week one way or another by posting a picture of your favorite young adult book using #BlinkTRW!

Who will be there?

From debut to bestselling, contemporary to dystopian, the Blink Teen Read Week Digital Tour offers a little something for everyone.

What will be going on?

The authors will kick off Teen Read Week by stopping in at over a dozen schools across the nation via Skype, but if you don’t happen to attend one of those schools, there’s other ways for you to connect!

Twitter Chats

On Tuesday, October 20 and Thursday October 22 you can catch the authors chatting it up on Twitter.

Follow the hashtag #BlinkTRW to ask your burning questions and see an epic talk among authors who write for teens!
