If you’re close to Richmond, stop in at Fountain Bookstore on Tuesday, Sept 13, 6:30 PM. We’ll be talking about what’s happening in YA lit these days, from our own perspectives. [FountainBooks Flyer Sept2016] After, we’ll be driving up the I-95 corridor to Politics & Prose on Thursday, September 15, 7 pm for our Washington friends.
I love both these authors for the top-notch work they’re producing. (Both are previous Girls of Summer guest authors, with Wonder Show and Fingerprints of You, respectively.) Their newer works: Some of the Parts and Invisible Fault Lines are fantastic follow-ups.
But these women also bring a sensitivity that I like when we talk about YA. Hannah is a former editor, and KP teaches Creative Writing at JMU and UVA. So, I always feel like the conversation they bring about Young Adult lit is deeper than just a review of storyline or process, etc. In fact, I feel like I learn something new from them every time we’re together.
Anyway, I know the fall is a busy time, but if you can squeeze in some book and author love, come on out!
