Additional Food Vendors
TBF has arranged for several food trucks to sell a variety of tasty foods. These food trucks donate a portion of their sales back to TBF so we hope that you will support them. Remember, lunch certificates are not valid at the food trucks or other vendors not associated with Nazareth College. 

While we try to have a variety of food options available, if you have specific food allergies or dietary requirements, you may want to consider bringing some snacks with you.  

Authors will be presenting during all sessions, with some authors alternating breaks during the two pre-selected lunch times.  During the lunch sessions, there will also be writing workshops, a teen author panel, a Teen Film Festival showing, drawing workshops, and a presentation about Writers & Books new Canvas Literary Magazine.  

Should you choose to skip a full lunch break, you could attend an additional session. 

Check back as TBF 2017 approaches for more details!

Book Sale

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!



Looking for swag to help you remember your TBF adventures?

Official TBF merchandise like t-shirts, bags, and other swag will be for sale in the Shults Center. 

TBF also offers an opportunity to win door prizes including loads of books from many sponsoring publishers. 

Still want more? Several other vendors will be in attendance selling lots of other cool stuff like jewelry, hats, and more!  These vendors will be in different locations than they have been in past years, so be sure to look for them or ask a TBF Volunteer to direct you!  All of our vendors support TBF through monetary and/or in kind contributions.
