We have a date! January 24, 2015! The Keller(TX) ISD secondary librarians have begun planning for #YAK15, our fourth annual young adult book festival, to be held at KISD's Central High School, 9450 Ray White Road., Ft. Worth, TX. 76244, as a means to provide the Keller ISD teen community with exceptional opportunities to connect with literature and authors in a non-academic setting. Once again, YAK Fest is being underwritten by the generous Hudson Foundation, and we thank them.
Our goals are to:
Connect teens with award-winning young adult authors
Enrich reading and literacy skills
Stimulate interest in reading and writing
Provide teens with an entertaining as well as educational event
Provide teens with leadership opportunities
Encourage "non-readers" to become readers through the enthusiasm of other teens
