Best atmosphere ever. That's how I would describe the Rochester Teen Book Festival. I've never before attended a teen book event that generated such a level of excitement, and such a feeling of community. Stephanie Squicciarini and her amazing team convey a simple, effective message to the thousands of young people who attend: Books are cool, and the teens who read them are cooler. If you're lucky enough to get invited as an author, SAY YES!
