Behind the Books: Authors Talk to Teens - Gail Carson Levine

Thursday, October 25, 2012  
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Have you ever wondered how authors choose names for their characters, how long it took them to get published or whether they prefer to use a computer or pen and paper to compose? Now’s your chance to ask!

The first fifty teens in attendance will receive a FREE book. Book signing to follow each author talk!
Gail Carson Levine is best-known for Ella Enchanted, a 1998 Newbery honoree that was later made into a motion picture. While the majority of her books are fantasy novels, Gail has published two picture books, a nonfiction book and a historical novel. Her latest book, Forgive Me, I Meant to Do It, is a humorous poetry collection for kids.

New this Fall - Enter to Win Coffee with One of the Visiting Authors! See website for details.
