Want To Meet ‘Divergent’ Author Veronica Roth? Hit Up YALLFest

Try not to cry.

Want the chance to corner all of your favorite YA authors in one place and ask them why they ended your favorite book that way? Now you have the chance! The YALLFest lineup is out and it certainly is a star-studded affair.

YALLFest is basically what it sounds like: a two-day extravaganza of signings and panels featuring young adult authors like “Divergent” scribe Veronica Roth and James Dashner, who wrote “Maze Runner.” More than 60 authors are participating in the event — which takes place November 7 through 8 in Charleston, South Carolina — including more than a few writers we’ve chatted with or featured on MTV News.
