MainLogoEllen Hopkins and Laurie Halse Anderson will headline the 5th Annual Teen Book Festival, scheduled to happen at Nazareth College on May 15, 2010.  If you haven’t attended one of these teen events yet, be sure to mark your calendar and plan on catching the bus from the library to Nazareth so that you won’t miss out again this year.  2009 saw almost 2,000 teens participating in this day-long, book-centered celebration of teens and books.

Have you ever seen a huge event specifically created for teens who love to read?  This is it.  Want to be really prepared?  Join our TBF book discussion group.  We’ll be meeting on every other Monday evening at Seymour.  We’ll be reading at least one book by 8 of the 25 confirmed authors for 2010.  Each teen who joins the group will get their very own copy of each book that we discuss.  You’ll decide on your favorite authors and know who to visit on the big day.  You’ll have copies of the books to have autographed.  You’ll have the chance to discuss these books with other teen readers, AND you’ll have snacks!  What more could a teen want?

Interested?  See Chris at the library or leave your name and number at the Information Desk.  We’ll let you know when the group will be starting.

Meanwhile, check it all out at http://teenbookfestival.org/
