Volunteers needed! The North Texas Teen Book Festival (NTTBF) returns to the Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas on April 21, and organizers need volunteers. Volunteers for the NTTBF have the chance to get involved and give back to the North Texas community, meet famous authors, engage with educators and students, make new friends and overall share their love of books and young adult literature.
College students, especially those pursuing degrees in education, English, creative writing or related disciplines should take advantage of this opportunity. Corporate and civic groups interested in becoming more engaged with the community also are encouraged to sign up.
Volunteers will assist with panel discussions, book signing and ticket lines, book sales, crowd and traffic control, greeting guests and monitoring the photo booth. Volunteers need to be at least 18 years old. Parking at the ICC is $8; however, DART also is an option.
The deadline is April 19. To sign up, visit NorthTexasTeenBookFestival.com/Singles/.
