Mar. 16 SPECIAL Teen Reading Lounge Author Visit
We are very excited to welcome young adult (YA) novelist Alex London for a SPECIAL Teen Reading Lounge Author Visit on Thursday, March 16 at 6:30 pm!
At this NO-STRESS event for Teens in grades 6-12, Alex London, author of Proxy and Guardian, will speak about the hopeful nature of YA dystopian literature, its impact on Teens, why it has remained popular, and how his novels were inspired by his experiences as a journalist in refugee camps.
First 15 Teens who register online will receive a FREE copy of Proxy! Light refreshments will be served.
Alex London has written over 20 books for children, teens, and a few grown-ups. His young adult dystopian thriller, Proxy, was an American Library Association Top Ten Quick Pick for Reluctant Young Readers and included on their 2014 Best Fiction For Young Adults list, as well as many state reading and award lists around the nation. For younger readers, he’s the author of The Wild Ones series (a Jr. Library Guild Selection), Dog Tags and Tides of War series, as well as the Accidental Adventures and two titles in The 39 Clues series. At one time a journalist reporting from conflict zones and refugee camps, he has been a public librarian, a bookseller, and a snorkel salesman (really!). He lives with his husband and dog in Philadelphia, PA.
Teen Reading Lounge is a program of the Pennsylvania Humanities Council and supported in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities. Learn more about PHC and the program at www.pahumanities.org.
