A nice mention (not by name, but we’ll take what we can get!) appeared in the Atlantic Wire yesterday. We’re marching onward to our conference in October! Have you purchased your tickets yet? Don’t miss out!
Less Than Three is a YA Lit/Anti-Bullying conference that will bring about teens, tweens, booksellers, teachers, administrators, parents, librarians, authors and more to rally against bullying. It will feature panels which focus on the various effects of bullying and positive approaches to tackling the issue. Less Than Three will bring people together, and get a dialogue going about bullying and how it affects everyone.
Heather Brewer (founder of Less Than Three and NYT bestselling author of The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod) was recently interviewed by the New York Times about bullying – you can read the full article HERE.
After what’s felt like a long wait, we’re happy to announce that tickets are now available to Less Than Three! Please note that there are a limited number, and no more tickets will be available after these sell out. So get yours quickly!

Brewer and her committee expect between 200 and 300 kids to show up. “I hope everyone comes and shares their story,” she says. “This is a thing I knew was important and needed to happen. It should happen.”

In addition to energizing her creative outlet, Brewer’s passion as an anti-bullying advocate continues to manifest itself in activism. She is a dynamic public speaker on the topic and has organized an anti-bullying author conference for October 19, 2013, called Less Than Three (<3), inspired by the emoticon—a “less than” symbol and the number three—that forms a heart, meaning love. Plans are for 16 YA authors, including Brewer, A.S. King, David Levithan, Ellen Hopkins, and Susane Colasanti, to take part.
