When I heard that Montreal was going to have the first ever MTL YA FEST(young adult book festival) I was super excited. Its happening May 27th from 11am to 4pm at the Jewish Public Library. This will be my first time ever attending an event there. Not quite sure why I have never attend events there before since several well known YA authors have come in to take part in the Girls Night program. So I am excited to visit a new library and check it out.
The schedule hasn’t been posted yet but as soon as it is I will make another post.
Some of the authors taking part is:
- Nic Stone
- Sarah Mlynowski (a local author who now lives in NYC)
- Danielle Paige
- E.K. Johnston
- Adi Alsaid
- Vikki VanSickle (a Canadian author)
- Brendan Kiely
- Monique Polak (a local author who I have met in the past)
- Gloria Chao
- Vicki Grant
- SAMIRA AHMED
- J-F. Dubeau (a local author)
- Samantha Marie Beiko (Canadian author)
- Chantel Guertin (Canadian author)
- Karl Kerschl (Canadian author)
- Aimee Friedman
- Jo Treggiari
- Sandra Gulland
- Teresa Toten (Canadian author)
I am excited to attend this event and hear more from these authors because they are all amazing authors and they have books I need to read asap. Time to dig them out of my TBR pile and read them.
