Adults are always welcome, but please remember the focus of the day will be on teens (grades 6-12) and as such they will receive priority in all sessions not specified as being for adults. Click here for more information.
Wow! TBF is really the ultimate teen book festival. There's nothing better than seeing so many teenagers in one place, all excited about authors, books, and reading. As an author of books about teenagers of color, I was especially gratified by the diversity represented at TBF. There was truly something for everyone. I wish there had been a TBF when I was a teen!
