Around Town: Young Adult Fiction Evening at KGB Bar!

It’s no secret that Young Adult fiction is hot right now – and the genre offers more than just supernatural romances, apocalyptic societies, or steampunk tales. It’s also no secret that we’re big fans of KGB Bar – we’ve written about them and are having our Open Mic Night there. So when we found out that one of our favorite NYC spots holds an annual Young Adult Fiction Evening*, we couldn’t wait to share!

Come by on May 10 from 7-9, to hear from four fascinating Young Adult novelists. Patricia McCormick, a finalist for the National Book Award, is the author of the forthcoming novel, Never Fall Down. Paul Griffin, an Amelia Bloomer Project Award Winner, is the author of a highly anticipated new mystery novel, Burning Blue. Neesha Meminger’s latest novel, Into the Wise Dark, is a time-travel fantasy that further cements her critical success, such as a spot on the Smithsonian’s Notable Books for Children list. Bil Wright’s acclaimed recent novel, Putting Makeup on the Fat Boy, joins the ranks of his other works, which include a New York Public Library Best Book for the Teen Age, and a feature on the American Library Association’s list of Books for Gay Teens.
