Yallwest Book Festival will be taking place on
When: Friday, May 3, 2019, and Saturday, May 4, 2019,
More than 20,000 people converged at Santa Monica High School to celebrate young adult and middle-grade books, with more than 100 authors participating in book signings, panels, giveaways, sing-a-longs, and shenanigans. Over 100 authors and presenters including New York Times Bestsellers along with local and acclaimed young adult and middle-grade writers, plus notable TV, film, video game, and comic creators. A day of panels, book signings, food trucks, bad jokes, rock ‘n’ roll, killer photo ops & general geeky shenanigans. Yallwest Book Festival will celebrate & empower the community of readers, writers, and creators. To give back to our community, win prizes, get books signed, and eat In-n-Out. The majority of the events are free, but there are a few ticketed events ($ 8 per panel). Join us for a madcap YA library takeover, YALLWEST style! We’ll be kicking off the festival weekend with a night of signings, tomfoolery, swag giveaways and more.
