Hosted by Blue Bicycle Books and authors Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, YALLFest brought together some of the most popular young adult authors from across the country for a weekend of readings, book signings, and pie. Writers like David Levithan (Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist), Carrie Ryan (The Forest of Hands and Teeth), and Pseudonymous Bosch (The Name of this Book is Secret) teamed up for seminars and fun events exploring YA-friendly topics like vampires, witches, and the undead. They had a massive turnout, and they've already set the date for next year's event: Nov. 10, 2012. And here we thought that kids these days just played on the internets all the time.
