What an amazing event the Rochester Teen Book Festival is. As an author, it's such a joy to see so many teens excited about books and reading. The enthusiasm at the 2010 TBF event was palpable, and I'm sure that enthusiasm carried through in the following days and weeks as teens shared of their experiences in meeting authors and hearing them talk about books and writing. The event itself is absolutely incredible - no detail left unturned, and I do believe all book festivals should thrive to be like this one. Thanks to all the volunteers who make this event happen, because books matter and teens matter!!!
