In Search of YA Authors for Reading Series Event in May!

Attention authors, fans, and Behind the Book supporters!

As you know, BtB has a reading series at KGB Bar on the second Thursday of every month, where incredible authors read from their newest works.

We are currently looking for Young Adult authors to be featured at our May reading series event on May 9th, 2013.  Here’s what we’re looking for:

* authors that have a book coming out around May (really any time in the Spring or early Summer)

* and live in the New York City area

* and ideally, write books that are relevant to the students that we work with (take place in NYC or similar urban setting, characters and plot reflect student experiences)

If you fit this description, or you know anyone who does, please email us at or tweet us @Behind_the_Book. Thanks for your help! Don’t forget to mark your calendars for the reading on May 9th, and happy reading!
