- We LOVE this photograph and post from @sungjoonkoo regarding his experience shooting #nttbf17: #Repost @sungjoonkoo with @repostapp ・・・ For these past 3 years, I had been privileged to photograph @nttbfest (North Texas Teen Book Featival) organized by @irvinglibrary at the @irvingtxcc. Each year, the numbers of attendees grew and their excitement overfilled my heart. As a photographer and as a book lover, I get so emotional when I witness the pure joy and happiness people feel when they meet their favorite authors. I have felt the exact same thing or more when I had a chance to meet @stevemccurryofficial in Waco many years back. Picking up his book made me want to be a portrait photographer and approach different cultures with great deal of appreciation. At this year's event, I witness a young girl holding Benjamin Alire Sáenz's hand with tears in her eyes after a panel talk. He, Mr. BAS, also had tears in his eyes listening to her testimony. I over heard her father telling another parent in the room "he is her hero, he has changed her life and her perspective in life". I couldn't stop crying... the feeling you have when someone has impact your life through their words or their work... then you finally get to meet your inspiration, your hero. Wow. I really want to encourage all the young book lovers to learn more about this event and get a chance to go next year! This is a life changing opportunity to many, including myself. Such an honor to be a part of this great event each year. Thank you @ktrevin0 for inviting me and @nttbfest for having me! . . . . . . . #instadfw #nttbf17 #irvingconventioncenter #yabooks #teenbooks #bookfestival #irvinglibrary #irvingtexas #middleage #ya #youngadultbooks #letsgosomewhere
