Can a book transform its reader?

Lots of talk lately about the role books play in helping young readers develop empathy and expand their world view. I don’t have definitive answers on that score but I will be talking about all of those meaty book issues with some fellow authors this weekend. I’ll be hanging out with Fonda Lee the author of EXO, Tina Connolly the author of SERIOUSLY SHIFTED  and Mary Elizabeth Summer the author of TRUST ME I’M LYING. It will be lots of fun. There might even be cookies.

It’s a ANOTHER READ THROUGH, an indie new and used bookstore in Portland at 3932 N Mississippi Ave . We will be there at 1:30 this Saturday December 3rd. Hope to see you thereseriously-shifted-smallHiRes Cover TIDEexo-199x300
