It's the night of the Jennys (or is that Jennies?) when two strong authors of realistic teen fiction join us on Wednesday, April 16, at 7 p.m. Jenny Han shares To All the Boys I've Loved Before - what if all the crushes you ever had found out how you felt about them…all at once? Jenny Hubbard brings us And We Stay, a gentle, smart and powerful book about a suicide's aftermath told in wonderful verse and prose. For ages 12+.
Join us for a special reading by members of the Carolina African American Writers Collective on Thursday, April 17 at 7:30 p.m. Raina J. Leon, Sheila Smith McKoy, and Lenard D. Moore stop by to present new work from diverse perspectives, channeling voice, color, and song. Theirs are works steeped in history, inflamed by the present, and inspired by the future.
"I am Ivan. I am a gorilla.... It's not as easy as it looks." Katherine Applegate not only received the 2013 Newbery Medal for The One and Only Ivan, she created a beloved modern children's classic.
