Boston's Book Festival took place in the Copley area of Boston at nearby chapel halls and churches. The festival is a smorgasbord of single author lectures and multi-author panels featuring both highly successful best-selling writers and up-and-coming debut writers. This year's festival offered many middle grade and young adult sessions that appealed to librarians, educators and young readers alike.
