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.
TBF is one big treat for authors and readers. The organization is superb, the readers are enthusiastic, and authors are treated like royalty. Every year seems to bring some new innovation and extra that adds to the fun. As an author, I'd jump at the chance to attend TBF again. Were I a sponsoring publisher, I would feel confident it was money well spent.
