Back to All Events


  • Santa Monica High School Santa Monica, CA (map)

Hi guys! I'm so thrilled to be coming back to YALLWest this year! This year will be extra special for me because there's going to be a ton of TDM-related things for you to see and participate in!

As always, I'm happy to sign whatever you bring with you to the festival. However, please note that I might have to reduce the amount of books I'm signing to three if I start running out to time and have to head to the next panel. 

Friday, May 4th

6:00-8:00 PM: Fierce Friday at the Santa Monica Public Library

(Please note that this is a ticketed event.)

Saturday, May 5th

11:00 AM @ Tent 1: Tricks of the Trade: Facing the Fear of Failure Panel

12:00 PM @ Centennial Quad: Signing

(This signing will be wristbanded. The wristbands will be distributed one hour before the signing at the designated table near the Information Booth at the entrance of the Signing Area. Queues for receiving wristbands can start 45 minutes before before that distribution.)

 3:00 PM @ Cafeteria: The Darkest Minds Movie Panel

Director Jennifer Yuh Nelson will be joining me to talk about her career and about the upcoming TDM movie. We'll also have a VERY cool sneak peek to share with you! 😊 Seating at this event is first-come-first-served, so please try to arrive a little early if you can.
