Secondary Librarians of the Rio Grade Valley in partnership with their school districts work together to gather Middle Grade and High School students of the RGV and award-winning authors to congregate in a fun, non-academic setting to connect with literature.
Our goals are to:
*enrich reading skills
*provide the opportunity for teens & tweens to meet young adult authors
*provide a safe, fun, educational event for young people
*encourage friendships with other like minded teens
*encourage "Reluctant readers" to read through the passion of their peers
*encourage and foster the love of books and the people who write them
We will have author sessions, illustrators on site, book sales, concession sales and author signings throughout the day.
