Once again I’ll introduce the four regional authors who will speak about and read from their work:
- Karen Day is a colleague in one of my writing groups. She specializes in emotional novels about middle-graders. Her latest is A Million Miles from Boston, showing how twelve-year-old Lucy’s annual summer trip to Maine doesn’t turn out at all as she’d hoped.
- Nancy Poydar has written and illustrated twelve picture books, including No Fair Science Fair. She taught sixth grade for over a dozen years before becoming a full-time book creator.
- Susan Lynn Meyer is the author of Black Radishes. This debut novel is about a young Jewish boy in Nazi-occupied France was inspired by experiences of Meyer’s father.
- Christine McDonnell is a picture-book author and children’s librarian from Jamaica Plain. Her latest, Goyangi Means Cat, shows a young girl coming from Korea to live with her new American family.
