Thursday, September 15, 2016 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Join three authors whose latest novels feature girls finding their way through troubled times. Medina’s Nora Lopez falls in love while grappling with dark family secrets during one hot summer that burns in New York City’s memory: the summer of the Son of Sam. In Some of the Parts, high-schooler Tallie struggles with her grief over her brother Nate’s death. After causing the accident that killed Nate, Tallie seeks comfort in music and new friendships—and also in tracking down the recipients of Nate’s donated organs. In another story about a girl and her grief, Madonia relates how protagonist Callie suddenly finds (or thinks she has found) an explanation for her father’s disappearance in an unlikely place: a photograph dating back to the San Francisco earthquake of 1906. Ages 15 and up.
