A one-of-a-kind book festival will connect area teens and the general public to authors of young adult literature with its launch in Murfreesboro, March 11-12.
The 2016 SE-YA in the ‘Boro Young Adult Book Festival will be held this Friday and Saturday at Middle Tennessee State University’s Student Union Building.
This year, the SE-YA Book Festival will bring 37 prominent authors of YA literature to Murfreesboro to take part in sessions such as panel discussions and writing workshops. Each author will have a designated time to meet fans and sign books during the event, and all books written by the authors will be available for purchase on site at the Follett festival bookstore. Proceeds of all on-site sales will support the festival.
The SE-YA Book Festival will take place over two days, and unlike most book festivals, will feature a special “teens only” day on March 11, where schools from across Tennessee will bring groups of middle and high school students to the MTSU campus. The public is invited to attend the Festival on Saturday, March 12. All events are free.
