Provo, UT – In an age of texting and iPads, turns out young people still like to curl up with a good book. The demand for fiction targeting children and teens is booming, and that enthusiasm is energizing Utah's creative community. KUER's Jennifer Napier-Pearce reports.

The Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators is meeting Saturday, Nov. 13 at the Salt Lake City Main Library, (210 East 400 South, Salt Lake City), 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
