YALLFest 2011, a FREE event featuring 26 of the country’s top YA authors is Sat., Nov. 12, 10 am to 6 pm. This is Blue Bicycle Books’ largest event ever. Adding up all the volunteers/writers/donors/and more, just the number of people working alone ranks in our all-time Top Five shindigs.
A spin-off of last year’s Capital Bookfest, YALLFest narrows the focus to the Young Adult genre. So who do we expect to come?
- People between the ages of 8 and 25.
- People who know anyone those ages.
- People who have ever been or would like to someday be those ages.
- People who like locally-owned businesses, especially bookstores.
- People who like pie.
- People who like books, especially novels, and love how novels create a world in the reader’s mind, something that starts when we stop having picture books read to us and start curling up alone with Nancy Drew and a flashlight, continuing through adulthood, Macondo, East Egg, the streets of Dublin…
