Twenty four excellent Young Adult Lit authors, including Marie Lu, Phyllis Reynolds Naylor and Ellen Oh, will speak in panels and break out sessions all day at the Washington-Lee Auditorium.

And at the end of the day there will be a massive signing in the auditorium of Central Library.

How did this extremely cool event happen? When staff at One More Page Books - an independent bookstore here in Arlington - asked our YA librarians what kind of teen event we should team up on, we had two words: Book Festival. And they ran with it!


The NoVA TEEN Book Festival is co-sponsored by the Fairfax Public Library, Fall for the Book, One More Page Books and the Arlington Public Library.
