On April 5, 12 authors from all over the country attended the 3rd annual TBF in Fairport, where crowds of young adults (and librarians!) were amused, entertained, and waited in long lines for autographs. Attendees had the pleasure of hearing Libba Bray talk about her trilogy, a self-proclaimed Victorian version of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, as well as inner critics and her inspiration. Another energetic session was that of Todd Strasser, who illustrated for his audience the elements of any good story. Timothy Zahn and his escort of costumed Star Wars characters were another big hit. Over 100 volunteers, both teens and adults, helped to make this event a success.
