2018 Greater Rochester Teen Book Fest

Since being established in 2006, the Greater Rochester Teen Book Festival has been an opportunity for public and school librarians to dedicate an event solely to teens, to encourage reading some of the best titles aimed at young adults, and to offer a place where readers can interact with award-winning authors. The Teen Book Fest demonstrates the value of teens within our literary communities and focuses attention on the authors who write for them.

The Teen Book Fest is free and open to everyone, but the focus of the day will be on teens (grades 6-12) and as such they will receive priority in all sessions not specified as being for adults. Adults may be asked to leave sessions that are full if teens are waiting to be admitted. If you have any questions about this policy, please email questions@teenbookfest.org

Adults will be asked to wait to enter until 5 minutes prior to the start of the session. At the same time, prior to the start of the session, if teens arrive the adults will be asked if they would be willing to give up their seat in the session for the teen.

Event Date: May 19, 2018 from 8:30 am - 5:00 pm
Location: Nazareth College: 4245 East Avenue, Rochester, NY 14618
Cost: FREE
Registration: None
Food: On your own
John Schu's Review of Books for You and Your Readers Too!

John Schumacher (AKA Mr. Schu) is a blogger, a part-time lecturer at Rutgers University, and the Ambassador of School Libraries for Scholastic Book Fairs. He served on the 2014 Newbery committee, which named the title Flora and Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures "the most distinguished contribution to children's literature." He has also served on ALSC’s Children and Technology committee, AASL’s Best Websites for Teachers and Learning, two readers’ choice award committees, the School Library Month Planning Committee, and the National Ambassador for Young People's Literature selection committee.

Every day is a giant book party for this teacher-librarian! In fact, Library Journal named him “The Xtreme Librarian” for the high level of exertion – along with some gears and stunts – he uses to get kids reading, and Instructor Magazine named him a Cool Teacher for redefining what it means to be a teacher-librarian. Join in a conversation with John Schu as he presents some of the best new books. In typical John fashion, he will share book trailers, websites, activities, and interviews you can easily incorporate into book talks and programs to get everyone in your library hurrying to your bookshelves to find the perfect book. This session is best for Pre-K to grade 6.

Co-Sponsored by RRLC (Rochester Regional Library Council) and The Leroy V. Good Library at Monroe Community College. This event is also co-sponsored by the School Library Systems in the Rochester region. Registration will be from 8:30-9:00 and we will begin promptly at 9:00.

Event Date: May 24, 2018 from 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Location: Monroe Community College
Cost: FREE
