YALLFest is back for the ELEVENTH time. You will not want to miss the electric energy of the Charleston Music Hall as we kick off the 2022 festival with Angeline Boulley (Firekeeper's Daughter) and Soman Chainani (The School for Good and Evil).
Angeline Boulley's debut, Firekeeper's Daughter, skyrocketed to the top of the NYT Best Sellers list and is set to be adapted by the Barack and Michelle Obama's Higher Ground production company for Netflix. Her second book, Warrior Girl Unearthed, arrives in 2023.
Soman Chainani's best selling School for Good and Evil world spans over 8 books and soon arrives to screens at home thanks to Netflix. The Paul Feig film features stars such as Charlize Theron, Kerry Washington, Michelle Yeoh, Patti Lupone and Lawrence Fishburne.
