Two award-winning young adult authors will be featured Robin Benway, whose book, “Far From the Tree,” was recently longlisted for the National Book Award; and Amber Smith, the New York Times best-selling author of “The Way I Used to Be.”

The authors will speak at 8 p.m. and then be available to sign their books. Each attendee will receive a copy of these books.

EpicFest also will include a D.J., virtual reality demos, art, Kiss Print reading, snacks, and more.

Tickets must be reserved in advance, and each teen can reserve two tickets. Parking is also free. A few days before the event, anyone who is registered will receive directions to download a parking pass. To reserve, click here
