Let there be books! BookPeople is ever so proud to be the official bookstore for the Texas Teen Book Festival. The store orders thousands of books just for festival goers and we also love book talking while you browse the selection! Festival goers will have the chance to buy books by every author at the festival, so you won’t have to worry about buying books elsewhere!

Have you ever thought about meeting your favorite author and how it’s the closest to a celebrity that you may ever get? Well have no fear, 29 authors are here for you to meeet-and-greet, and get the autographs that you’ve always dreamed of! It’s always a special thing when you can come face-to-face with the authors who created your favorite books, characters, and to be able to let them know how much you loved their work. The Teen Press Corps will be there and there will be some serious fan-girls and fan-boys to go around!!!
