Montreal and Quebec’s only festival of its kind that brings authors of the Young Adult genre from across North America for a full day interactive event will take place this Sunday, May 26 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Gelber Conference Centre, 5151 Cote Ste. Catherine Road. Dubbed MTL YA FEST, the event is organized by Talya Pardo, director of the Norman Berman Children’s Library of the Jewish Public Library.
In the first installment of a series of episodes covering Montreal YAFest, Teffer interviews the Mtl YaFest founder, Talya Pardo. We talk about how YAFest came to be, what authors we can expect to see at this year's YAFest, and why YA appeals to such a wide audience!
