YallFest Author List Released

Living in the South doesn't always have it's advantages...unless an author (or two) write a book about a small, made up town in your state then plan an amazing book festival there too! That would be my case.

Not a lot goes down, here in South Carolina. But now, for the second year, YallFest is back in Charleston, SC for what will be yet another amazing year. They just released the author line-up, and I'd be lying if my mouth didn't drop open from the shear amazingness that is the line-up.

There's a totally of 48 authors...whoa.

The official lineup includes:
Kwame Alexander, Jennifer Lyn Barnes, Holly Black, Pseudonymous Bosch, Sarah Rees Brennan, Heather Brewer, Kiera Cass, Cinda Chima, Cassandra Clare, Andrea Cremer, Katie Crouch, Gitty Daneshvari, Melissa de la Cruz, Matt de la Pena, Kim Derting, Simone Elkeles, Elizabeth Eulberg, Gayle Forman, Kami Garcia, Adam Gidwitz, David McInnes Gill, Adele Griffin, Deborah Harkness, Jenny Han, Siobhan Vivian, Michelle Hodkin, Ellen Hopkins, Tonya Hurley, Michele Jaffe, Caitlin Kittredge, Alyson Noel, David Levithan, Stephanie Perkins, Diana Peterfreund, Kathy Reichs, Brendan Reichs, Beth Revis, Jessica Rothenberg, Carrie Ryan, Eliot Schrefer, Natalie Standiford, Trenton Lee Stewart, Margaret Stohl, Cate Tiernan, Robin Wasserman, Marjorie Wentworth, John Corey Whaley, and Kathryn Williams.

Did you read all of that?! This makes me all the more excited to be a part of something so awesome. I can't wait for this year's festival and I hope you can't either! I hope to see you there!

Also, Cassie Clare and Holly Black will be keynoting the festival to launch it into an amazing weekend.

YallFest will take place in Charleston, SC, on November 9 and 10. Be sure to check the official YALLFest website for all the details.
