Something wicked this way comes…wicked fun that is!

Join us for the 2017 Books by the Banks festival to get in the “spirit” of Halloween and hangout with over 20 teen authors. Spend the day getting to know the authors during two VIP Meet and Greet sessions or competing with (or against!) them in games that test your skill and brainpower. This year’s Teen authors include:

Lauren Oliver                                Erica Chapman
Kurt Dinan                                     Andrew Maraniss
Jeff Girard                                     Cinda Williams Chima
Emily Henry                                  Erin McCahan
Melissa Landers                            Mindy McGinnis
Natalie Richards                           Kristina McBride
Josh David Bellin                          Andrew Speno
Adi Alsaid                                       And more!
Chelsea Bobulski         

And if meeting awesome teen authors isn’t enough, you can pick your poison with our awesome lineup of all day maker-activities including special guest HIVE 13, get spooky in our photo booth, ‘tattooed’ by our own henna artists, or learn how to apply stage make-up for Halloween!

We’ll see you at the Teen Scene on Saturday, October 28th for a frightful good time!
