Before I tell you all about YALLFest, I want to give a shout-out to the lovely icon makers who made my new icons - [personal profile] naushika, iloveimpala67, larmay, and upoffmyknees. The Haven and Sleepy Hollow icons you make are incredible.

And now, for YALLFest!

For those of you who don't know, YALLFest is a YA book festival held every November in Charleston, SC. Tons of authors and readers take over the street around Blue Bicycle Books. Readers get to meet their favorite authors and listen to them talk on panels. It's a YA mini-con.

This year's big draw was Veronica Roth, and she had a ton of people come out to see her. There were so many people I couldn't get near her.

I did, however, get to meet Marie Lu:



And the reason I came, Libba Bray:



I even ran into Libba Bray at the restaurant we stopped at for lunch while waiting for the bathroom. And then when I met her at the signing, she remembered me. *Beams* It was awesome!

All in all, a good day. I am a happy librarian.

So reports of Roth being shunned and driven out of publishing because people didn't like the end of Allegiant might have been premature?
