YAK Fest '14

Young Adult Keller Book Festival

The YAK is Back!

What we're about:


Connecting teens with award-winning young adult authors
Enriching reading and literacy skills
Stimulating interest in reading and writing
Providing teens with an entertaining as well as educational event
Providing teens with leadership opportunities
Encouraging "non-readers" to become readers through the enthusiasm of other teens


3rd Annual YAK Fest

Saturday, Jan. 25th, 9am

The previous two YAK Fests were made possible by generous grants from the M. R. and Evelyn Hudson Foundation through the Keller ISD Innovation grant process, and we are thrilled to be awarded a Hudson grant for the third year in a row.
