In 2011, young adult authors Jennifer Murgia and Cyn Balog approached Stephanie Supinski, branch manager at Palmer Branch of the Easton Area Public Library. They wanted to do a festival celebrating YA authors and their books, but also to allow teens to talk to the authors about their books.
Currently, YA Fest PA is run by Jennifer and Ashley Supinski.
Our mission is to give middle grade and teen readers a chance to connect with authors about books, writing, and publishing. As a library event, we want to encourage young readers to continue reading.
YA Fest PA is an Easton Area Public Library event, sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
Ashley & Jennifer are in the midst of plotting their next festival! They are aiming for summer 2019.

Authors, we will be opening up inquiries about attendance for 2019's festival this Fall. We will send out a notice on our website and social media accounts.
