New Activities for Teens in Book Festival’s Geektown

Are you a teenager planning on being at the San Antonio Book Festival on April 2? Or are you the parent of teenagers who love to read?

Well, take it from us — you are going to love our new and improved GEEKTOWN, the Book Festival’s exclusive area for teens. We have a dedicated team of people who have worked hard to make Geektown a cool space for our young adult readers to spend the day at the Book Festival. Check out what we’ve added! And help us spread the word about this awesome opportunity for Geeks at the Book Festival by sharing this flyer.
