What a wonderful day!

Hundreds of passionate, book-loving teens gathered at Nazareth College to meet teen authors and talk about books.   Thanks to the generosity of Brad Alexander at Northside Express Mart, 25 Seymour teens were transported to the festival to join their peers.  The autograph lines at the end of the day were filled with teens waiting for their favorite author’s signature.  Some people might still be there, waiting in the Ellen Hopkins or Laurie Halse Anderson lines!

Some books really make you SMILE!


Snoopy loves teen books, too!

Anime, pizza, a costume contest, crash landings on bizarre planets and kumihimo braiding filled the night as Seymour’s Anonymous Otaku, the anime club, shared 10 hours of friendship, food and fun.  Everyone went home tired, grumpy and wanting to know when we can do it again.  Many thanks to our chaperones whose presence made the night possible.
