One of my favorite things from my time at the Young Adult Literature Symposium was getting to see Gene Yang draw for us! He drew a picture of the Monkey King, a character you'll be very familiar with if you've read American Born Chinese. Here's a picture!
And here's a picture of Gene Yang and Terry Trueman talking about their books.Terry Trueman is hilarious and really open about his life. If you haven't read Stuck in Neutral, I highly recommend it.
I also learned a lot about hosting events for those of who are fans--of books, movies, TV shows, comics, and more! Are you a huge fan of Twilight? Harry Potter? Batman? The Sims? Tell me what you love--I want to give you the chance to have an event here at the library. Email me or comment here!
