Ontario City Library: 2014 Teen Book Festival 

 The Ontario City Library is proud to present our 4th annual Teen Book Fest.  This year’s event is shaping up to be our best yet, with 15 of today’s best young adult authors attending.  The morning will kick off with 3 keynote

 presentations provided by Jessica Brody, author of the bestselling Unremembered trilogy, Lauren Kate, author of the Fallen quartet, and John Corey Whaley, recipient of the 2012 Printz award.   Other Teen Book Fest authors include: Katie Alender, Elana Arnold, Robin Benway, Livia Blackburne, Ava Dellaria, Katherine Ewell, Jessi Kirby, Catherine Linka, Lauren Miller, Mary Pearson, Lissa Price and Sarah Skilton.

Attendees will be treated to a full day of author panels, including a new addition in 2014: TBF Speed Dating!  This fun and fast paced event will give attendees the opportunity to “date” up to 8 authors during a one hour period. Lunch will be provided to all attendees through generous funding from the Best Buy Children’s Foundation and the Friends of the Ontario City Library.  Other local authors will also be on hand during the event as session moderators, so be sure to keep an eye out. 

Our event will finish up at 3pm with the All Author Signing.  Attendees can purchase books on hand from Mrs. Nelson’s Book Fair Company, or bring their own copies from home to get signed by their favorite authors.   Remember to bring you camera, as photography is strongly encouraged at this event. 

Join us on Saturday, May 17, 2014 for this annual event.   If you’d like more information, please feel free to contact me directly at 909-395-2225 or csaldana@ci.ontario.ca.us
