author visit

Coming down to see the Questioneers exhibit at the Ottawa Street Branch? Why not join us on Wednesday, June 21 for a chat with youth and teen author, Sarah Aronson?

Sarah began writing for kids and teens when someone in an exercise class dared her to try. Since then, she has earned an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts, and published the following books for kids and teens: Head Case, Beyond Lucky, and Believe, a young MG series, The Wish List as well as Just Like Rube Goldberg, illustrated by Robert Neubecker, Brand New Bubbe, illustrated by Ariel Landy. She is over the moon about her next book, a picture book biography about Bella Abzug, called Abzuglutely! (Calkins Creek, Astra Publishing).

When Sarah is not writing or reading (or making great soup or riding her bike), she is talking to readers, young and old, about creativity, writing, social action, and of course, a love of reading! She loves working with other writers in one of her classes at the amazing Highlights Foundation, SCBWI, or Writers on the Net. Warning: When she gets really excited, she makes funny faces and talks with her hands. Don’t be shocked if she talks about the power of play. She lives in Chicago, Illinois.

Sarah will be visiting the Ottawa Street Branch on Wednesday, June 21 at 7 p.m. and discussing writing children’s books and other interesting things! Join us to hear her speak!
