YALC is nearly upon us and the excitement levels are HIGH. But we know lots of you can’t make it and we didn’t want you to guys feel left out. And you won’t have to!
We’re going to be streaming on Facebook Live from YALC all weekend with our brilliant host, YouTuber and presenter on ITV’s ‘Scrambled’, Luke Franks!
In case you’re not sure, YALC (Young Adult Literature Convention) is the only in the UK dedicated to YA. 2016 is its 3rd year and it just keeps getting bigger and better. This year there are 84 authors attending – talk about spoiled for choice!
There will be panels, workshops, signings, creeping on bookish people – and we’re going to be right in the thick of it so you won’t miss a thing, even if you’re stuck at home!
Don’t forget to like us on the Maximum Pop Facebook to follow our YALC adventures on Saturday and Sunday!
