[image-1] If you can’t make it to this year’s YALLFest, held Nov. 10-11 in various locations in downtown Charleston, you can still get your fave young adult books signed by their authors, and with over 80 YA writers in attendance, you have plenty to choose from.
Books available for pre-order (and pre-signing) include Becky Albertalli’s The Upside of Unrequited, Holly Black’s The Silver Mask, Victoria Aveyard’s King’s Cage, Kami Garcia’s The X Files Origins, Margaret Stohl’s Royce Rolls, and more.
This year’s YALLFest kicks off on Fri. Nov. 10 with YALLCrawl signings along King Street from 2-5 p.m. The Red Carpet Preview, presented by Penguin Teen, is held on Fri. Nov. 10 at the Main Library from 4-6 p.m. Another signing called Fierce Friday takes place at John L. Dart Library from 3-5 p.m. Lineups and ticket info for these events will be announced soon.
On Sat. Nov. 11 you can check out a number of panels, with participating authors like Jason Segel (yes, that Jason Segel), Marissa Meyer, and Angie Thomas, as well as a YA smackdown. Tickets are available for purchase online.
Head online to pre-order signed books. You can either have them shipped to you post-festival, or skip the lines and pick them up on Sat. Nov. 11.
