Thanks to the generosity of the Provo City Library and its long-standing partnership with Provo School District, twenty of the PUPs from Provo High were able to enjoy a one-on-one brunch with author Tom Angleberger on Saturday, October 19.
The brunch was the opening celebration for this year’s Teen Book Festival featuring the author of The Strange Case of Origami Yoda, The Secret of the Fortune Wookiee, The Surprise Attack of Jabba the Puppett, and Darth Paper Strikes Back. Students received signed copies of Angleberger’s Origami Yoda and had the opportunity to ask him questions prior to his keynote address.
Other activities at the festival included face painting, haiku writing, light saber crafts, and a book giveaway for over 300 teenagers who attended the event. There was also a special visit from Darth Vader, Storm Troopers, and other Star Wars characters.
