This Saturday over 100 middle grade and young adult authors and presenters will converge on Santa Monica High for the 3th annual Yallwest Book Festival. It’ll be a day of panels, book signings, food trucks, bad jokes, rock ‘n’ roll, killer photo ops & general geeky shenanigans. YALLWEST and its sister festival, YALLFEST (held in Charleston, SC), are now the largest teen and middle grade book festivals in the United States.
This is the perfect event for the young book lover in any family.
