Do you love YA fiction? Well, the folks at the Pasadena Central Library hear ya and will again host a day devoted to Young Adult literature. From 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Sept. 16, Pasadena Love YA brings more than 15 authors to the library for panel discussions, meet-and-greets and book signings. Amerie, Audrey Coulthurst, Cindy Pon, Emily Ziff Griffin, Daniel Sweren-Becker, Aditi Khorana, Jeff Garvin and E. Katherine Kottaras are among the writers scheduled to appear. Get there early because the first 200 attendees get a free tote bag. You might want to stay late, too, for the 3:45 p.m. Book Blitz, where you can win a free book. There will also be giveaways throughout the day. No tickets are needed for this free event; get updated details at www.pasadenateenbookfestival.com.
