YALLWEST, the annual celebration of middle grade and YA literature, encourages y'all to stay home one more time.
The main event is on April 24, but the excitement for YALLWEST builds with a wide range of special events starting April 17.
The virtual festival offers a full schedule of panels on Instagram and Zoom, covering topics such as friendship, digital distractions, love and loneliness, Queer lit, Asian American superheroes, and speculative fiction.
In the lead up to the main festival, a number of special events are held including giveaways, virtual scavenger hunts, a poetry workshop, games and more.
