What is NoVa TEEN?

NoVa TEEN is the first book festival of its kind celebrating Young Adult literature in the Northern Virginia/DC Metro Area. In 2018 we will be hosting our fifth annual event, and it is sure to be the biggest yet.

Who’s behind NoVa TEEN?

The awesome people at One More Page Books, George Mason University’s Fall for the Book, Arlington Public Library, County Public Library, and more! Check them out on our sponsors page.

When is NoVa TEEN?

NoVa TEEN will be held on Saturday March 10, 2018.

Where will NoVa TEEN be held?

NoVa TEEN will be held at Washington Lee High School 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, you can park on the street along N. Quincy St. or over at Arlington Central Library. (Note: The library’s garage locks at 5 pm. If you are late getting to you car, you won’t be able to get out until Sunday.)

How much does it cost to attend NoVa TEEN?

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

Do I have to register?

In order to give the best experience possible for festival guests, volunteers, and authors, we want to have an accurate count of how many people plan on 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 sell every author’s books at the event!

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 answer them! Why don’t you send us an email?
