Last year’s first annual Frederick Book Festival kicked off with almost 100 authors in attendance, 15 panel discussions, author readings, and fun activities for the children and young adults. Young adults lined up to meet their favorite authors. The kids and many adults had a blast playing the YA Dating game with our authors. Many of us learned of topics from the publishing industry to the paranormal world of romance to diversity in fiction. Our Steampunk authors spoke about the intricacies of their genre and wowed readers with their wonderful costumes. There was definitely something for everyone.
