BIRMINGHAM, Ala.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–People’s Choice Awards winner for “Favorite YouTube Star,” Connor Franta is set to visit three Books-A-Million stores as part of the upcoming book tour for his second release, “Note to Self.” Fans can visit Books-A-Million stores in Kissimmee, Fla. (April 19), Katy, Texas (April 20) and Grapevine, Texas (April 21) for a chance to meet the popular lifestyle entrepreneur and social media phenomenon as he promotes his latest book. Each stop will feature a professional photo opportunity with Franta, with images available for download following the event.
In his New York Times bestselling memoir, “A Work in Progress,” Connor Franta shared his journey from small-town Midwestern boy to full-fledged internet sensation. Two years later, Connor brings to light a side of himself he’s rarely shown on or off camera. In this diary-like look at his life since his first book debuted, Connor talks about his battles with clinical depression, social anxiety, self-love and acceptance; his desire to maintain an authentic self in a world that values ‘shares’ and ‘likes’ over true connections; his struggles with love and loss; and his renewed efforts to be in the moment–with others and himself. Told through short essays, letters to his past and future selves, poetry and original photography, “Note to Self” is a raw, in-the-moment look at the fascinating interior life of a young creator turning inward in order to move forward.
Tickets are required to attend the author event and are available for purchase online at www.frantaflbam.eventbrite.com (Kissimmee, Fla., April 19), www.frantakatybam.eventbrite.com (Katy, Texas, April 20) and www.frantagrapevinebam.eventbrite.com (Grapevine, Texas, April 21).
