Main Street Books, 126 S. Main Street in Davidson, is hosting its inaugural Heck YA! Book Fest on Saturday, July 27th, 2019, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
This book festival celebrates middle grade and young adult books and authors.
It’s free to attend but you have to register. If you register by July 6th you’ll get a free t-shirt. All registration ends Wednesday, July 24th, 2019.
The program will begin with a keynote address at Main Street Books from Gillian McDunn, author of Caterpillar Summer.
Following the keynote address, attendees can choose three panel discussions to attend.
Each panel discussion will feature four to six authors discussing a specific theme and will take place at one of two locations: The Birdsnest or the Community Room in the Davidson Public Library.
The festival will conclude with closing remarks and a book signing at Main Street Books.
