To our non-tween friends and fans:

  • The inbeTWEEN Book Festival is a day for tweens to meet and interact with authors of books for them.
  • Adults are welcome as chaperones, but there will be a small fee for their attendance.
  • Tweens have the priority for seating in all panels. Adults may not take a seat until all interested tweens have had a chance to enter the session.
  • Tweens are the focus – they are the ones to ask questions at the sessions. After all tweens have had a chance to ask, then adults will have an opportunity.
  • Tweens will have first priority in all signings lines.
  • Tweens only are allowed to participate in activities hall.
