YALC – or Young Adult Literature Convention – is part of the London Film & Comic Con and is being held at Olympia in Kensington, West London, on the weekend of 17th-19th July. The first ever YALC was last year, launched by the Children’s Laureate Malorie Blackman – there had never been a really big convention for teen and young adult books before that and it was a great success. This year’s event promises to be even bigger and more exciting – we can’t wait!
Author events, workshops, book signings, famous authors and some not-so-famous ones – it’s all happening at YALC. For more information have a look here:-
Us Piranhas are getting ready – we have bookmarks, badges and a banner (hmm, alliteration too!) – and we’ll be bringing three brand new titles in our various YA series. Why not come and take a look? We’d love to connect with readers and are always happy to chat, sign books and give out swag. There might even be chocolates (unless it’s too hot, in which case we’ll bring something else)! Hope to see you there!
