About Read Up

Read Up, Greenville is an annual celebration of Young Adult and Middle Grades books and authors. By bringing teens in close contact with authors through book signings, panels and interactive events, the festival will encourage youth to continue their love for reading and hopefully encourage non-readers to become readers.

Read Up is a day of celebration. There will be book sales, author signings, panel discussions and keynote speakers. The day will feature multiple panels specific to different themes. One panel may focus on graphic novels and another on romance YA books.

Check out the 2017 authors here and stay tuned for the 2018 authors!
