2016 Author Lineup


Keynote Speaker:  Aija Mayrock

Aija started writing “The Survival Guide to Bullying” when she was 16 years old and finished it in 2015, at 19 years old. Aija promised herself that she would publish this book as a gift to the next generation of kids that would be bullied. She self-published this book in October of 2014 and one month later, Scholastic acquired it. Aija dealt with bullying for many years, beginning in the 3rd grade. In the midst of these very difficult times, Aija discovered her creativity and passion. She wrote her very first screenplay on the day of the deadline for the Santa Barbara International Film Festival 10-10-10 competition. She won the competition and from that time forth pursued her passions. She has also won awards from the Scholastic Art and Writing Competition for her writing and poetry. She is currently a student at New York University.
