New voices speak up

YA librarian and current Boston Globe–Horn Book Award judge Robin Brenner hosts a panel of “New Voices in YA and Children’s Literature” tonight, July 20th.

The up-and-coming authors—all recent grads of the Simmons MFA in Writing for Children program, including HB freelancers Natasha Gilmore and Shara Hardeson—will read from their work, then discuss their process and their publishing experiences. The event begins at 6:30 in the Brookline Library Teen Room and will be followed by a reception in the library’s cafe. Additional info available here.

I’ll be there to cheer them on!  See you there.
