MTL YA FEST! is the first young adult book festival in Montreal. Our goal is to connect teens with their favourite authors in a fun environment. We are run by the staff of the Norman Berman Children's Library of Montreal and the incredible volunteers who help us each year to make it happen.


Our event includes panel talks, discussions, games and any other ways in which we can connect readers to YA authors and content creators.
