Teen Book Fest At PCL

01 Nov, 2010 by in provo teen fest, scott westerfeld 51 comments

On Saturday the Provo City Library held their Teen Book Fest with Scott Westerfeld as the keynote speaker. It was insanely packed full of teen readers and local authors, over 900 people. There were Q&A panels, trick or treating tables, book giveaways and games. We could only stay for a second since their red face paint marked my children for life… LOL! But, we still snuck in visits and signings with some of our very favorite people. I also spotted local authors Nichole Giles, Elana Johnson and book bloggers SueySays and Meow_mix 85 in the line to meet Scott Westerfeld. I SO hope Provo City Library is planning on doing this again next year. It was huge. See all of our photos from the event on twitter @fireicephotos
