WELCOME TO BOOK YA YA

Book Ya Ya is an author appearance marketplace that connects readers, authors and event organizers in a simple, safe and easy-to-use environment.

In South Louisiana, the phrase ‘gumbo yaya’ refers to chatter or conversations at a party. With Book Ya Ya those conversations happen about books.

Co-founded by Louisiana born-and-bred DeLauné Michel, author and producer of the acclaimed literary salon, Spoken Interludes, and her husband, Dan Fried, Book Ya Ya makes it possible for readers to connect directly with their favorite writers.

“In Beverly Hills, around 3pm on Bedford Drive, a strange rite occurs. All the men and women who have had facial surgery leave their surgeons and walk up and down the street bandaged like mummies in Prada, waiting for their loved ones to pick them up.”
