Waupaca Book Festival

Can you believe it?  John Green, the bestselling author of Looking for Alaska, An Abundance of Katherines, Paper Towns, and Will Grayson, Will Grayson, will be the keynote speaker for the Waupaca Book Festival this weekend!  This is an author who usually speaks to huge crowds at conferences and conventions in big cities across the country, and you can see him for free right here in Waupaca.  No traffic jams, conference fees, plane fare, or vacation time necessary.  You won't even need binoculars to see him.

John's novels have received many awards, including both the Printz Medal and a Printz Honor. And his popular video blog Brotherhood 2.0 has been watched more than 30 million times.

He will be speaking at 3:30 at the Waupaca High School on Friday, October 1. The event is free and open to the public.  I guarantee it will be one of the funniest and most intelligent presentations you've ever seen.  John is young, relaxed, naturally hilarious, and speaks to teens through his novels better than almost any other author writing today.

His books will be for sale in the lobby before and after the program, and he will be signing books after he speaks.  You can socialize with John, and nearly all of the authors coming to the Festival, on Friday evening at the Green Fountain Inn. Then, on Saturday morning, John will join his friend and fellow author, Amy Krouse Rosenthal, at the Rec Center at 9:00 AM for a joint presentation, which could be about almost anything, but will definitely be entertaining.

John's books are available at Dragonwings right now; they will be sold at the events, at the autograph garden at the library, and after the event at Dragonwings, in case you missed them everywhere else.  Here they are:
