Today marks 100 days until Wordstock Festival in Portland, Oregon! It’s happening October 6-9th this year — and once again, I’m serving as the children’s & YA author coordinator. And honestly, I couldn’t be more excited about this year’s line-up. We’re still waiting to finalize a few more names, but in honor of hitting this 100 day mark, I wanted to officially share with you guys the YA & MG line-up so-far. And I think you’ll agree, it’s an all-star list!

If you live anywhere in the Pacific Northwest, I fully expect to see you at Wordstock. And if you don’t live here — now is the perfect time to visit!
Over the coming weeks, I’ll be providing you with more posts that include both a travel guide to Portland (if you want to come here for Wordstock), plus more about each of these authors and their books. And be sure to stay tuned for an announcement about the final line-up. There will be a few more names added to this list in the next few weeks!
