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 was *the* most wonderful author event I've ever attended. From the moment I arrived, I felt like a rock star! Everything was perfectly arranged, on-time, and, best of all, TBF allowed me to meet thousands of teen readers. I was--and am--honored to be part of such a clearly well-planned and flawlessly executed event, and will cherish my memories of meeting the librarians, the fabulous teen guides who navigated me through the day and, of course, all those amazing teen readers! Any author who is invited to TBF is in for a weekend they will never, ever forget!
