Each year, Richmond Public Library hosts a celebration to honor Virginia authors who have published books for teen readers in the previous year. This year, the event will take place on Saturday, October 6th from 2:00-4:00 pm in the Auditorium of our Main Library. Attendees will have an opportunity to meet with the authors, learn about their books, and possibly win a copy of their own. During this celebration, this year's YAVA Award winner will be announced.
Limited parking will be available for YAVA attendees in the Richmond Times Dispatch parking deck. Parking is free for YAVA attendees. The parking deck entrance is at the corner of 3rd Street and E. Franklin Street. Upon entering, please inform the guard that you are attending the YAVA Celebration at Richmond Public Library. The deck will only be open from 1:00-5:00pm. All vehicles must vacate the parking deck 15 minutes prior to closing at 4:45pm.
