Mission Statement

YALLWEST and its sister festival YALLFEST (based in Charleston, S.C.) are the biggest teen and middle grade book festivals in the country. In its inaugural year, YALLWEST drew over 8,000 attendees and donated thousands of dollars in book sale proceeds to school libraries in the Santa Monica Malibu School District, as well as hundreds of books to students in the Los Angeles Unified School District. Dedicated to school outreach, we bring in over 800 students from Title 1 schools with our program: Books, Buses, and Burgers. This program is free and gives students transportation to the festival, a free book of their choosing, and lunch for the day.

Description

Our festival connects readers with authors and this year we are brining in over 125 authors as well as comic book writers, TV and Film makers, and Youtubers to be part of the weekend.
