The Southeast Young Adult Book Festival is giving a preview of this upcoming major event next year by featuring five best selling authors from 6:30 to 8:30 Thursday evening, October 27, 2016, at the Linebaugh Public Library (105 West Vine St.).
These local young adult authors will take part in an author reveal, the official launch event of SE-YA Book Fest 2017. In addition to revealing the list of 38 authors participating in the Southeast Young Adult Book Festival, the authors present at the event will speak about their books and what SE-YA and festivals like it mean to authors and readers. The rest of the evening will be spent interacting with those present at the event.
Parnassus Books will be on hand to sell the books of the authors in attendance. Students, librarians, teachers, and the community have been invited to come out and be part of the big reveal. The event is free and open to the public.
SE-YA Book Fest co-founders are Erin Alvarado with Central Magnet School, Barbara Collie and Liz Hicks, both with Stewart's Creek High School.
There is no charge to attend the event, but you are encouraged to them know you plan to attend. e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
SE-YA Book Festival is March 10-11, 2017
A FREE one-of-a kind of event that will take place on Friday and Saturday, March 10-11, 2017 in Murfreesboro, Tenn., SE-YA Book Fest is designed to place teens and authors of young adult literature in a setting to interact about what they love most -- YA lit! The event will feature author visits, panels and presentations, book signings, meet-and-greets, writing workshops and more. Now in its second year, the primary goal of the Southeastern Young Adult Book Festival, a 501(c)3 organization, is to encourage and develop literacy in young adults by connecting them with authors, thereby advancing education in the community. Last year, nearly 2,000 people attended the event, including students from 40 Tennessee middle and high schools and visitors from 12 states.
