The Blink Tour
Zondervan’s YA imprint Blink launches THE BLINK TOUR, a cross-country book tour featuring a wide array of speculative fiction with unique perspectives on magical fantasy worlds and bleak dystopian futures. Each stop on the five-city tour will feature a combination of seven prolific YA authors, including Golden Heart finalist Carey Corp and HonestlyYA blogger Lorie Langdon (DOON); Christy Award finalist Lisa T. Bergren (REMNANTS); co-founder of readergirlz Lorie Ann Grover (FIRSTBORN); Robert Treskillard (THE MERLIN SPIRAL series); Christy Award winner Jill Williamson (THE SAFE LANDS series); and Jonathan Friesen (AQUIFER), whose first YA novel Jerk, California received the ALA Schneider Award.
The Blink Tour will be coming to a city near you May 12th – 17th, with stops in Jackson, MS; Decatur, GA; Memphis, TN; Salt Lake City, UT; and Tempe, AZ. Events will feature a reading and Q&A with three or four authors, tons of swag up for grabs, and even bigger prizes to win in the grand prize giveaway at every stop.
Blink brings true stories and fiction to YA readers. The literature published by Blink is a positive reflection of what is inspiring and heartening while maintaining a tradition of imaginative and exciting storytelling that will bring readers to the edge of their seats, immerse them in a heartrending love story, or engross them in a story of a life well-lived. Readers will see themselves in all facets of Blink’s literature and will find new levels of entertainment that enrich and uplift.
