Georgia Center for the Book is offering its young audience a zany, Jimmy Kimmel-esque live talk show centered around YA authors called YATL. The program was created by former bookseller, author and literary influencer Kimberly Jones, and author photographer, writer, literary influencer Vania Stoyanova, and writer, artist Jessi Esparza who also serves as showrunner. YATL is a live show in the Georgia Center for the Book auditorium filmed for later playback on Facebook with author interviews, games, giveaways, fun video clips and lots of shenanigans. For February, YATL will feature: Rachael Allen and Lauren Karcz! Rachael Allen is a mad scientist by day and YA writer by night. She lives in Atlanta, GA with her husband, two children, and dire wolf. She loves homemade peach ice cream, having adventures all over the world, and stories that make her feel like she’s been poured inside another person. Lauren Karcz is the debut YA author of The Gallery of Unfinished Girls. She’s a professional language nerd, having worked as an ESL teacher, a linguist, and now as an author. Lauren lives with her family in Atlanta, Georgia.
