ON SITE PURCHASES
Vendors will be selling both books for signing (and reading!) and book-related swag!
ENTRY & SECURITY
Security will be present at the front door to the building, as well as throughout the campus the festival is held on. Bags will be checked by security upon entrance.
Montreal is usually sunny and warm at the end of May. Lunch can be eaten both inside or outside in a gated garden, but the festival itself will be indoors and weather should not be a concern.
THESE ITEMS ARE ALLOWED
Cameras, cell phones, copies of books purchased off-site, and pens are all acceptable and encouraged. We will ask that you mute the ringer on your cell phone during panels and other activities to respect the speakers, and refrain from using flash photography.
THESE ITEMS ARE PROHIBITED
No alcohol, weapons of any kind, or outside food is permitted on the festival premises. Should you require specific food accommodations, we ask that you contact us in advance.
Photographs of the event will be taken and used for social media and marketing purposes. By purchasing a ticket and attending the festival, you acknowledge that there may be photographs or videos taken of you and/or your minor child(ren) during this event, and you consent to the use of these photographs and/or videos in future Jewish Public Library or MTL YA FEST communications.
