When life happens and you can’t be in Santa Monica for YALLWEST…
…YALLSTAYHOME saves the day!
Two weeks ago, I was able to attend YALLSTAYHOME from the comfort of my bed. The book festival did an amazing job shifting to a virtual set-up in such a short amount of time. Lots of giveaways were held throughout the two weeks leading up to the event, and panels were extended to include the full weekend. There were even extra events, including an Instagram Live of Soman Chainani learning TikTok dances.
Here’s a little snapshot of the panels and lives I tuned in for:
Saturday, April 25
✶ Modern Magic Worldbuilding
✶ Facing the Enemy: Hope, War, & Revolution
✶ Soman Chainani Learns TikTok Dances
✶ YALLSTAYHOME Smackdown
Sunday, April 26
✶ Suckage is Part of Writing
I had so much fun with this year’s special YALLWEST! This was my second year attending the book festival, and I’m looking forward to seeing what new surprises will come next year.
If you were able to join the fun, I would love to hear your thoughts about the panels and activities. Which were your favorites?
Until next time, happy reading! ♡
