Seven Dobie students were among those attending the 'Smart Chicks Kick It Tour' last week, an event featuring a panel of renowned authors of young adult books. The girls brought their favorite books and participated in a discussion featuring an assortment of authors, including Kelley Armstrong, Melissa Marr, Alyson Noel, Holly Black, Sarah Rees Brennan, Cassandra Clare, Kami Garcia and Margie Stohl. The event was held at the Refuge on Memorial Drive and was sponsored by Blue Willow Books. The audience was regaled with witty anecdotes, information on writing, favorite characters and movie prospects.
