The campus was buzzing with creativity and the quiet energy only a room full of books can bring. We saw many new titles that we can't wait to read, and our TBR list grew exponentially!
|Children's Authors, Stephanie Robinson & Tui Sutherland|
We met with Tui Sutherland, author of the middle grade series Wings of Fire and other children's stories. After listening to Ms. Sutherland talk about the inspirations behind her fantasy stories, we are excited to read her books. If you like stories about dragons and other fantastical creatures, this author is for you!
Book bought: The Menagerie
|Children's Authors Stephanie Robinson, Phoebe Stone, and Jessica Haight|
Phoebe Stone talk about her stories, and how she experienced many of the events that she describes in her books. The tales of her family's travels from England to America during the war really set the scene and held the audience captivated. It was fascinating to learn about her poet parents, and hear a few excerpts from her books. Ms. Stone was an amazing reader, and we can't wait to dive into one of her stories soon.

Emmy and the Home for Troubled Girls. This story is part of a series. What drew us to the table was the cover. It's fabulous, and it was really cool to meet the illustrator, Jonathan Bean. The pictures throughout are amazing and they add that brilliant touch of magic that just makes you want to read the book!
