Fandom Fun

STRANGER THAN FANFICTION author Chris Colfer is coming to Yallwest to talk books! 

Yallwest is already boasting a big lineup for this year’s event, and now STRANGER THAN FANFICTION author Chris Colfer will be joining in on the fun!

The 3rd annual Yallwest book festival is loaded with so many amazing writers, it’s hard to imagine they could fit in anymore authors. But those involved sure did! This year, not only will we have a crap-ton of Yallwest first-timers, including Shadowhunter Chronicles author Cassandra Clare and The Maze Runner trilogy author James Dashner, but actor/writer Chris Colfer will be there for an Author Spotlight panel!

The Glee alum will be accompanied by Melissa de la Cruz for an afternoon panel. Though Yallwest is free to attend, the panel is not, and tickets can be purchased here. All tickets are $5 per person, and all ticketed panels are listed here.

You can also purchased pre-signed copies of Colfer’s Stranger Than Fanfiction prior to the panel. As lines will be long for author signings, it’s recommended you purchase the pre-signed books.

Check out the list of some popular authors that will be attending Yallwest this year at Santa Monica High School!

Yallwest is a 1-day on Saturday, April 29th at Santa Monica High School. There will be a Fierce Friday Preview Night event which will be held from 4pm to 8pm at the Santa Monica Public Library on April 28th. The Friday event is free, but you must reserve a spot as space is limited.
