The rain held off on Saturday allowing Collingswood Book Festival attendees to enjoy meeting hundreds of authors and booksellers lining Haddon Avenue in Collingswood, New Jersey. Marianne Modica (pictured), author of The R Word, engaged visitors in dialogue about contemporary racism. She shared information about the young adult novel she crafted, which in addition to being a captivating story, can be a tool for educators to stimulate classroom discussion. Librarians and teachers alike expressed the need for such a resource.

Sharing the booth with Modica was Martin Woodside of Calypso Editions. Woodside and Modica are currently doctoral students at Rutgers University.
