TEEN.com just announced the list of authors that will be attending YALLFEST 2013 and Veronica Roth, author of Divergent will be in attendance. YALLFEST takes place in Charleston South Carolina on Saturday November 9th, 2013. Another good thing about YALLFEST is that it is FREE. Veronica will be attending along with other popular YA authors and she will be a keynote speaker. I will definitely be making my way up to South Carolina this November.
YALLFest is coming up quick, and it’s better than ever. For the 2013 edition of the Charleston young adult book festival, some of Teen’s favorite YA authors — like Veronica Roth (Divergent), Lauren Oliver (Delirium) and Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl (Beautiful Creatures)! — are joining together for a packed day of panels, signings, readings and more. And fortunately for you (and us), we’re revealing the entire roster for the first time.
But before we do, get this exciting news — Veronica Roth’s one of the keynote speakers! So thrilling considering we recently sat down to interview her about the Divergent movie, and of course the third book in the trilogy, Allegiant.
If you are new to YALLFEST here is some information about it:
Who’s coming: 50 of the country’s top YA authors, including 25 New York Times bestsellers.
What: Panels, presentations and signings on three stages on Upper King Street, as well as the infamous YA Smackdown!
When: Sat., Nov. 9, 2013, 10 am to 7 pm
Where: Blue Bicycle Books, the American Theatre, Charleston Music Hall, Upper King Street, Charleston, SC
Will you be joining us this year at YALLFEST?
