Marcellus bibliophiles hit the road for Teen Book Festival

June 20, 2016 -- Members of the Marcellus High School and C.S. Driver Middle School book clubs attended the Greater Rochester Teen Book Festival in Rochester on May 14, with high school librarian Kelly Regan and DMS English teacher Caitlin O'Meara.

The book fest is a free event at Nazareth College that connects teen readers to young adult authors, encourages aspiring teen writers to interact with established authors and brings together teens who enjoy reading. Students read books by the authors throughout the year. Then, at the fest, they had an opportunity to meet the authors, attend presentations and connect with other teen readers throughout the state. 

Students had an incredible time, Ms. Kelly said, and enjoyed meeting their favorite authors—including Jesse Andrews, A.S. King, Carolyn Mackler, K.L Going, Laurie Halse Anderson, Ellen Hopkins, Scott Westerfeld—and having their books signed.
  • High school students: Marcy Gosson, Jayden Herr, Madeline Lanning, Sydney Spanfeldner and Kailey Young,
  • DMS students: Maggie Strempel, Sara Mack, Lindsey Balman, Emma Murphy, Layla Aydelott, Fatoumata Konteh, Paige Cook, Emma Hardy and Jaiden Capozzi

Kailey Young (at left with author Jesse Andrews) said: "I had an amazing time at TBF again this year; that is the truth. I had the honor of meeting authors Jesse Andrews (‘Me, Earl and the Dying Girl’), Carolyn Mackler and K.L. Going."

Maddy Lanning (at left with author Ellen Hopkins), said of the trip to Teen Book Festival: "Truly amazing and an experience I'll never forget!"
