Kelsey Ford is the creator and director of Bookish in the 'Burgh, Pittsburgh's Teen Book Festival presented by Riverstone Books.  Bookish is a project of the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust.  Bookish celebrates teen literature and encourages lifelong reading by bringing acclaimed authors of teen literature and their readers together.  The Festival aims to celebrate all things bookish through diverse and inclusive author panels and conversations, opportunities for teens to interact with their peers in a safe and fun environment, and book signing events for readers to meet their favorite authors of teen literature. 

The festival returns to Pittsburgh's downtown Cultural District March 27-28, 2020.  For more information, including a full list of over 35 authors attending the festival, please visit
