October YA and Middle Grade Events

Some of you may have noticed that I no longer do Book Events Listings for the entire country. I used to but it just honestly got to be way too much work for me. I know it was really cool for you guys but it really was a ton of work. If any of you need help on finding book events in your area, I will be more than happy to help, but for now, I will be sticking with California (mostly Southern) events!

If there are any events missing, please inform me so I can keep this list as updated as possible!
