The Keller ISD secondary librarians have begun planning for #YAK15, our fourth annual young adult book festival, to be held at KISD's Central High School, 9450 Ray White Road., Ft. Worth, TX. 76244,  as a means to provide the Keller ISD teen community with exceptional opportunities to connect with literature and authors in a non-academic setting.  Once again, YAK Fest is being underwritten by the generous Hudson Foundation, and we thank them.  The keynote speakers will be BARRY LYGA, MATT DE LA PENA, AND TIM TINGLE.

 

WHEN: Saturday, January 24, 2015 9am – 5pm

COST:  FREE

OPEN DOOR: Come when you can and stay for as long as you like,

of course we want you there all day!
