A team of librarians plus a bunch of enthusiastic teens and tweens made this video plea that will (hopefully!) convince Rick Riordan to make Rochester, NY one of the stops during his Fall 2017 book tour. Please like, comment, and share in order to build support and enthusiasm for his potential visit.

If you are sharing this video on social media, you can use the hashtag RickROCs.

Special thanks to all the teens, tweens, and parents whose participation in this project really made it something special!
