Y’all, we are EXCITED to spread the word that James Dashner, author of the Maze Runner series, will headline the Texas Teen Book Festival as this year’s keynote speaker!

Dashner’s latest novel is The Eye of Minds, a novel set in a world of hyper-advanced technology, cyberterrorists, and gaming. He is also the author of the 13th Reality series. The second book in the Mortality Doctrine series, The Rule of Thoughts, will be on our shelves August 26.

Here’s what James Dashner himself has to say about the news: “I was lucky enough to attend the Teen Book Festival right after The Maze Runner first came out, and to now return as the headliner for the Texas Teen Book Festival is exciting and surreal. I’m very honored, and I plan to enjoy every single second of my time there!”

This is the first of many awesome announcements to come from the Texas Teen Book Festival (formerly the Austin Teen Book Festival). Get the news first by following TTBF online:
