YALLFest, the largest young adult book festival in the South and one of the biggest in the country, is back this November. Blue Bicycle Books hosts the two-day long shindig which features plenty of signings, panels, and special events. One of the authors generating the most hype is the multi-talented actor Jason Segel. Perhaps best known for his role as Marshall in How I Met Your Mother, Segel is also a New York Times bestselling author. Also anticipated is Corrie Wang, locally-based and published author of The Takedown (read all about it in City Paper's April cover story). "We're trying to get more local folks to come out to the festival because 70 percent of fans are from out of town," notes owner Jonathan Sanchez. Some of this year's special events include biscuit giveaways from Callie's Hot Little Biscuit with head sponsor Underlined, and coffee and donuts events with the authors at the Charleston Museum. As in years past, Fierce Reads will host Fierce Friday at a currently undetermined location, which is a meet-and-greet with YA authors on Friday afternoon. After that is YALLCrawl, which features authors hanging out at various venues on Upper King to meet fans. The rest of the weekend promises plenty of literary fun.
