Teen Author Fest

We’re so excited about the line-up for the eighth annual Teen Author Fest and we hope you are too!

Whatever your taste, Teen Author Fest lets you connect with the authors you love and other like minded readers. We can’t wait for the fun to begin! 

Mark your calendars for Saturday, October 21, 2017  for a free public bilingual event for all ages at the Main branch (120 Metcalfe) from 12:00-5:00pm with twelve Canadian YA authors. 

A big thanks to our partners Perfect Books and Le Coin du livre. They will be on hand to sell the authors’ books at our event.

All programs are free and open to everyone. Join us for author talks, panels, writing workshops, book sales, prizes, and more!
