Meet the Author - B&N YA Reading and Signing
Wednesday, Oct. 22nd, 7pm
3102 Northline Ave
Meet young adult authors Joy Hensley and Jenny Hubbard. Hensley’s book Rites of Passage is a fast paced novel where a 16 yr old girl discovers that being one of the first young women to attend an all male military academy leads to unexpected problems. With the grueling military training, academic expectations, horrible living conditions and hazing from the other students, Sam finds herself with few allies, and choosing the wrong person could have deadly consequences.
Jenny Hubbard’s And We Stay is a powerful book about the aftermath of suicide. Emily Bean is no goody-goody. Her parents have placed her at a boarding school after her boyfriend’s suicide and her abortion. Emily is driven to write out her grief and horror (Paul shot himself in front of her in the school library) in poetry that she models after her inspiration Emily Dickinson, who attended the same boarding school.
