We are back with the 2nd annual Bozeman Teen Book Fest! Join us on Thursday, April 2 2020 in welcoming acclaimed young adult authors Tiffany D. Jackson and Jeff Zentner. The Bozeman Teen Book Fest is a day devoted to teen readers (or teens at heart!). Come hear presentations by our visiting authors, have a chance to ask them questions and even get your books signed! Our authors will be making two presentations at Bozeman High School's Berg Library and an evening presentation at the Bozeman Public Library. All events are free and open to the public.
New this year, we are calling for entries in the Teen Writing Contest: Honor Your Voice, for grades 7-12. Write an original short story, personal essay, graphic novel or comic excerpt, poem or song lyric that involves "Honoring Your Voice" in an important way. Winners will be announced during the evening session at the Bozeman Public Library on April 2, and will receive prizes from local businesses. Contest forms will be available soon both online and in-person, so stay tuned!
