Welcome to YALLSTAYHOME, a virtual fest for our community to stay connected & inspired despite our social distance. ✨ We'll be organizing contests, giveaways, signed books, special events and two full days of panels April 25-26. Meet our author line up now!
YALLWEST 2020 is canceled in response to COVID-19 concerns. We know this is disappointing news for many in our community, as we ourselves are devastated by having to make this decision. Sending so much love as we plan some fun, online surprises for you! 💙💛
THANK YOU to everyone who was a part of YALLWEST 2019- our panelists, sponsors, exhibitors, staff, volunteers + everyone who came to enjoy the panels, signings, special events, BTS lip sync battles, impromptu award ceremonies and our bookish, nerdy, incredible community. ✨ We seriously love all of you and love creating a place where we can all come together to celebrate each other. 💛💙 See you next year!
