Thursday, February 9, 2017 at 7:00 pm

Explore the breadth of middle-grade fiction with noted authors Anne Nesbet, Kekla Magoon, William Alexander, and H.M. Bouwman. Each of the panelists’ most recent novels represent multiple genres, all involving young people who unlock their personal histories to reexamine their identities. Follow a young boy’s unexpected relocation to Cold War-era Germany as he uncovers secrets about his family’s past in Anne Nesbet’s Cloud and Wallfish. Join 12-year-old Robyn as she tries to save her hometown and heritage in Kekla Magoon’s modern take on Robin Hood, Rebellion of Thieves. Finally, dive into fantastic scenes that draw parallels to the surreality of war, slavery, and the immigrant experience in William Alexander’s Nomad (Ambassador #2), and H.M. Bouwman’s A Crack in the Sea. Moderated by children’s author and reviewer Mary Quattlebaum.
