Where will NoVa TEEN be held?

NoVa TEEN will be held at Washington Lee High School and Arlington Central Library in Arlington, VA.

The main entrance is Door 5 (the farthest one opposite the track and field area, near the Planetarium.) There’s a parking deck there with free parking, which is first-come, first-serve. Once that’s full, people can park on the street along N. Quincy St. or over at Arlington Central Library. (Note: Anyone parking at the library, if you park in the garage then it locks at 5 pm and your car can’t get out until the next day.)

How much does it cost to attend NoVa TEEN?

Nothing! NoVa TEEN Book Festival is free to attend, thanks to our awesome sponsors!

Why do I have to register?

In order to give the best experience possible for festival guests, volunteers, and authors, we need to have an accurate count of how many people will be attending. You can come without registering – all are welcome!

Can I bring my own books to the signing?

Yes! You can bring up to three of your own books with you to the signing. But don’t worry — we’ll be selling more books at the event itself!

What are breakout sessions?

The breakout sessions feature the authors listed and seat a limited number of people. During these sessions, the authors and attendees can have Q&A sessions about their books, writing, publishing and other topics. It’s a low-key discussion led by you — the reader.

I have more questions!

We’re happy to help! Why don’t you drop your questions in our ask box or send us an email?
