Barnes & Noble is the official bookseller of TBF!
Books by all the TBF authors will be available for purchase at TBF and, if you buy your books at the Fest, a portion of the sales get donated back to TBF. It would be great if you wait to buy your books at TBF, but you can also bring books you already own to be autographed.
Unfortunately, Barnes & Noble gift cards are not able to be used at TBF.
If you are a teacher or librarian and have a lot of books, depending on the length of the autographing lines, you may be asked to limit the number or go back to the end of the line for additional books.
Buy books at the festival, support TBF, and then have the books signed by your favorite authors at the end of the day!
