QUESTIONS and ANSWERS
We’ve been asked some questions about NoVa Teen on Saturday. Here’s some of our FAQs.
Where do we enter? We’re at door 5, for the auditorium.
Where can we park? There’s a parking deck next to our entrance. Once that’s full, there’s street parking all along the area (you may have to walk a little) and the Metro isn’t that far! There are also other spots scattered throughout W-L and in the garage at Arlington Central Library.
Which Metro stop is closest? Ballston
What if I can’t stay all day? Then come for what you can! Even if it’s half the day, or one session, or you have to come and go or if you stay all day. Everyone is welcome to leave or enter as needed.
Who can come? ANYONE. Old, young, teen, adult — if you like books, then you are welcome.
How do the break out sessions work? There are three sessions, in addition to the main panel, per hour. You can obviously only be in one place at a time (unless you’ve mastered time travel or have a Timeturner—and if so then talk to us because we may need your secrets) so you’ll have to choose. They’re all great options.
The break out sessions are Q&A time with the listed authors, and they have limited first-come, first-serve seating.
When is the signing? At 4pm at Central Library.
How do I get to the library? It’s very close to the school — walkable. We encourage you to walk and then go back to your car. The path will be lined in red balloons and we have a map when you arrive and get a program!
How long is the signing? We currently don’t have a specific end time, but it’s estimated to last no longer than 2 hours. (It depends on how many of you stay!) But if you are in line, then we assure that you’ll get a book signed.
What if I can’t stay for the signing? You can talk to the people selling books at the event — they have a system in place to get your books signed and personalized if you can’t stay!
Can I bring books from home to be signed? Yes! You can bring up to 3 books from home to be signed. Additional books will be available all day that school and during the signing for purchase.
What do I wear? Clothes! There’s not a dress code, just be comfortable.
Will there be food? We have a local high school group selling snacks and water all day at the event. There aren’t really any places nearby for food, so come prepared with a snack. There is, however, no food or drink in the main auditorium. We will have breaks throughout the day between panels for snacking.
If you’re at the event on Saturday, we’ll have some chances to win prizes! Talk about us on twitter and instagram with #novateen for more updates, pictures and excitement!
