Inspire Teen Reads Competition Finals

1:15 PM - 2:45 PM

Organized entirely by teenagers themselves, Inspire Teen Reads challenges 13 to 18-year old competitors to convince a panel of authors, publishing professionals, and you, the audience, to pick up the books they will champion through 5-minute prose, poetry, or spoken word pitches.

Join judges Kenneth Oppel, Evan Munday, and Nancy Cooper, for this not-to-be-missed competition!
