Saturday, I went to the Rochester Teen Book Festival at Nazareth College. There were a lot of really good authors there. Here's a list of them all:
Laurie Halse Anderson
Lindsay Cibos & Jared Hodges (author/illustrator team)
Matt de la Peña
Amy Kathleen Ryan
Jennifer E. Smith
Vivian Vande Velde
I saw talks by Vivian Vande Velde and Alyson Noel while I was there, and I also got some books signed at the autographing session near the end of the festival:
I also wanted to get Crank signed by Ellen Hopkins, but I didn't have enough time.
Anyway, overall I had a really fun day!
Thanks to everyone who sponsored during the Read-a-thon last year that raised money for this festival!
