SummaryJoin us for an evening with beloved children’s authors who will discuss their latest projects, moderated by Jolie Stekly, instructor of the Writing for Children program at the University of Washington.
DescriptionAuthor of the Newbery Honor Book "Al Capone Does My Shirts," Gennifer Choldenko shares her newest novel "Chasing Secrets," an exciting historical mystery set in San Francisco during the Gilded Age. Choldenko’s writing brings history to life for young readers, exploring a medical mystery, race relations and the introduction of immunizations.

Three-time Newbery Honor author Jennifer Holm discusses her most recent projects, including the widely popular "The Fourteenth Goldfish." Inspired in part by her own childhood and her doctor father, Holm has crafted a brilliantly quirky, thought-provoking novel that celebrates the wonders of science and will make you believe in the possible.

Rebecca Stead, Newbery Medal winner for "When You Reach Me," joins us to talk about her new release, "Goodbye Stranger," a captivating and intriguing novel that explores friendship, love, bullying, double standards, and what it means to be true to yourself and to those you love.
