YALC 2019 – who’s there and what’s happening?


Taking place at the London Film and Comic Con – this is one of the biggest weekends in books.

Mark it in your calendars, Friday 26th to Sunday the 28th of July is when all your bookish dreams can come true at London’s Olympia. YALC or the Young Adult Literature Convention if you’re being fancy, is back for another year.

YALC 2019 is a celebration of the very best books for young people – and fans of young adult fiction will once again have chance to meet favourite authors, discover new books, listen to inspiring talks, take part in hands-on creative workshops, meet agents and publishers – and much more!

This year’s line up is still yet to be announced but if 2018 is anything to go by – you’re in for a real treat.

Full Weekend or Day Tickets are available now, here.

    I am planning a trip to London just for YALC. I really want to know if I will be able to buy a book and have it signed there or will I have to bring my copies all the way from Australia? I would really like to be prepared and not miss out on anything. 🙂

      Authors who will be doing signings will be released soon! There are book stalls there from all different publishers, so chances are you can buy the book there 🙂 We’ll update this article as and when we get more information too! See you there
