YALLFest 2012

     YALLFest showcased more than 40 of today’s top young adult authors. It featured award winning authors at a variety of panels and signings as well as live music and a Literary Marketplace. The HHS Library provided book talks to ELA classes and encouraged students to sign up to attend as well as enter a drawing to win tickets to special events. 10 students won and were awarded tickets to either the Keynote Address, which featured Cassandra Clare and Holly Black, or to the YA Smackdown, which included all authors on stage in an impromptu storytelling extravaganza. The HHS Librarians were able to attend and speak with students who were there about meeting some of their favorite authors.
