Daniel Waters cover.jpgYoung adult books have never been hotter than they are right now (come on, you know you read YA, admit it), and this festival gives YA a chance to shine. In a first-of-its-kind event in our literary city, the Boston Teen Author Festival is a unique celebration of young adult literature. The festival boasts an impressive list of fifteen wonderful YA writers, including A.C. Gaughen, Amelia Atwater-Rhodes, Caitlin Kittredge, Daniel Waters, Diana Renn, Erin Dionne, Huntley Fitzpatrick, Jack Ferraiolo, Karsten Knight, Kate Burak, Laurie Stolarz, Leigh Fallon, Marissa Doyle, Steven Goldman, Susan Carlton, and Wendy Wunder. The festival will have three parts: time for book sales and mingling with attendees and authors; four 45-minute panel sessions to choose from; and a signing session at the end. Feel free to bring your own copies, or support host site Emerson College's bookstore by purchasing at the event. It's a rare opportunity to get up close and personal with some fantastic writers! Pre-registration is required for security reasons. Street parking is limited. Sun., Oct. 28, 1-6 p.m. Teens and adults. Emerson College's Bordy Theater, 216 Tremont St., Boston.
