YALLWEST is an annual Young Adult and Middle Grade book festival in Santa Monica, CA. It's a free event which serves over 20,000 readers, authors, artists, and fans each year. I have worked as festival coordinator since it's inaugural event in 2015 and produced YALLWEST since 2016. In that time, we've seen it, along with our sister festival YALLFest, grow into the largest Young Adult literary events in the country.
