Millennials called and this 9th annual festival answered. With eight days and over 110 authors, you can be a part of New York City’s biggest YA (young adult) event. Panels of novelists, symposiums and Q&A sessions, oh my! If you think each day will be the same, you are surely mistaken. With themes ranging from “Advice for the Class of ’16,” “With a Different Beat Since You Came Along,” “The Secret YA Lives of Adult Characters,” and “Relationships are Hard” there is something for everyone; even your pickiest of friends will be glad they came along.

With events this good, you’ll wish they had a sequel.
