TBF will bring teens face-to-face with thirty-one award-winning authors from across the nation. Attendees will be able to meet and ask questions of their favorite authors as well as introduce themselves to new ones. The festival opens with a panel with all authors together and then continues with special breakout sessions designed to promote interaction with readers and writers. Teens will also have the chance to attend an autographing session. Featured authors include Laurie Halse Anderson, Jay Asher, Charles Benoit, Ann Brashares, Ellen Hopkins, E. Lockhart, Alex London, Lauren Myracle, G. Neri, Neal Shusterman, and Terry Trueman. Books for all of the Festival authors are available at local public or school libraries and for purchase at local Barnes and Noble stores.
