Rochester Teen Book Festival (2017)
May 20, 2017 @ 8:45 am - 5:00 pm| Free
Saturday, May 20, 2017 @ 8:45am-5pm – Rochester Teen Book Festival: Nazareth College, Rochester, NY
Teens can sometimes be overlooked in libraries, with much attention, money, and resources given to children and adults. Somewhat caught in the middle of budgetary constraints, this is our opportunity to dedicate an event to teens, to encourage their reading, and to demonstrate their value to and within our communities. And…to have fun!
Here’s where you can find me…

To find out when and where authors are presenting, download the FINAL 2017 TBF GRID Schedule and Detailed 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.

*Autograph Session: 2:30pm-5:00pm
*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 cafeterias and snack stations will close around 3:30pm.
