You read it right, the Young Adult Lit Con is back for another year!
I have wanted to make a post about this for such a long time but I thought it would be best to wait until the official author list was revealed by YALC and it has! You can find the list of 60+ authors, which includes Cassandra Clare, Samantha Shannon, Patrick Ness, Sally Green, Holly Bourne, and of course the Children’s Laureate herself, Malorie Blackman, here! It hasn’t yet been confirmed which days (out of the three) any of the authors will be attending, however Cassandra Clare has confirmed herself that she will be attending on the Saturday.
And Samantha Shannon has also confirmed that even though she doesn’t know which day she will be there on official business, she will be attending all three days. Since she is one of my favourite authors, I hope to bump into her!
I can’t wait!!! I’ve already asked for the long weekend off from work and it was approved the other day so I am super excited! The event will be three days long and you can buy your tickets now, here at Eventbrite!
Prices are as follows:
So far I’ve only purchased a Saturday ticket but after seeing the entire author list I am considering upgrading my ticket, and giving my current ticket to a friend. Whether you choose to go for the entire weekend or one day out of the three, I’m pretty sure you’ll have a blast! So make sure you grab your tickets before they sell out!
