In Upper School book club, we advocate for reading. We read books together or we just sit down and discuss books we have read and make recommendations for one another. Ya’ll fest, an annual literary festival, is a place where we can do all that but with tens of thousands of other students from around the country. The Ya’ll Fest is a literary festival that is held annually in Charleston, South Carolina. It brings together authors of young adult books, and readers from all over to participate in panels, discussions, and book signings. This year seven WCDS students and two teachers traveled to the event. The trip was open to students that participate in book club. The group attended book signing events with Marissa Meyer, author of The Lunar Chronicles, and Angie Thomas, author of The Hate You Give. Some members also attended a panel discussion with Jason Segal (How I Met Your Mother star, and author of several books) and Kristyn Miller where they discussed their new book and other books that inspired them to write. Overall it was a weekend well spent with friendly fellow literature lovers.
