Among the top of the festivals I've been to. That your TBFLive! is aimed at teens is what makes yours the best of its kind! You are focusing on a vital group of readers, readers at a key moment in their literacy lives. It's touch and go for a great many, and it seems to me from talking to Keenan and the others that you've touched them in a very cool way with books. They'll be life-long readers as a result. I've never seen this many reading-crazy kids in my life. Would that they'd be like this the world-over.
