Young Adult Literature Convention

YALC: love reading

The Young Adult Literature Convention (YALC) took place 17-19 July as part of the London Film and Comic Con for 2015!


YALC is a celebration of young adult books. It's an interactive event where YA fans meet their favourite authors, listen to panel discussions and take part in workshops.


YALC 2015 included a programme of panel events on our YALC main stage, featuring lots of fantastic young adult authors. But there were also hands-on workshops for small groups, book signing sessions with all authors taking part, and fun drop-in activities in the Book Zone. Take a look at some of the 2015 hightlights.


YALC is managed by Book Trust, in partnership with Showmasters, who run London Film and Comic Con, and supported by headline sponsors Prudential plc. Further support for the event comes from the UK's YA publishers and Waterstones, who provide a bookshop at the event.
