1st Annual Chicago Young Adult Book Fest!!! (Sulzer Library)


Calling all YA fans!

We are absolutely thrilled to invite you all to the first ever Chicago Young Adult Book Fest! This will be an incredible day filled with books, readings, and a slew of your favorite (or soon to be favorite!) Young Adult authors.

The day kicks off at 10:00am. Join us and the authors at Conrad Sulzer Regional Library for a series of fascinating panel discussions.

Then, at 5:00pm, mosey on down to The Book Cellar for a reception and book signing, where you'll get a chance to meet and rub shoulders with all the great writers you heard throughout the day. Ask them for tips, have them sign your well-worn copy of their book, or discover a new favorite.

Click HERE for a look at the full schedule, there are tons of cool panels to check out so you'll have plenty to talk about when you meet the authors later at The Book Cellar!

This is a day not to be missed!
