Coming soon: the free Young Adult Book Festival YALLWEST to be held on May 3 and 4 2019 at Santa Monica High School. The 2019 schedule of events, authors, and exhibitors is not yet available, but you can take a look at the 2018 YallWest schedule here.

Last year, 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, singalongs and shenanigans.
