YALC is the UK’s Young Adult Literature Convention - a celebration of the very best young adult books and authors. YALC takes place each year as part of the London Film and Comic Con.

The first YALC took place at LFCC in 2014 as Malorie Blackman’s major project as Waterstones Children’s Laureate 2013-2015. In 2018, YALC celebrated its fifth birthday, and will return in 2019 bringing together even more fantastic authors, publishers and readers for three packed days of YA events, writing workshops, book signings, book-themed activities and more!
