Thanks to feedback from attendees, we have altered our schedule to better accomodate different needs, including allowing for more time between sessions and for the autograph session. Below is a general schedule for the day.
To find out when and where authors are presenting, download the FINAL 2017 TBF Schedule and Map here! They print out on 8 1/2 x 14 paper. The map is color coded to large signs you will also find on campus in front of each building. We will have copies of these and the official program at TBF, but this is provided so you can start to plan your day.
To find out more detailed info on the Non-Author/Workshop Sessions, download this schedule here.
Doors open 8:30am so you can start shopping for books!

*Please note, all authors must leave at 5pm. To ensure the authors can leave on time, the TBF (committee) volunteers will make a determination at 4:30 regarding the length of the line. At that time, the TBF volunteers may need to stop newcomers from joining an autographing line if there are already too many people in the queue. We also may need to limit the number of items being autographed by any author in order to ensure that all fans get their items signed.
Food trucks will be onsite from 9:00am until around 4:00pm or their food runs out! Nazareth Grill & Deli will close at 3pm. Millie's Coffee Shop will close at 4pm.
