Author Steve Brezenoff will visit the R.H. Stafford Library in Woodbury in mid-February to talk about the writing process and answer questions from those in attendance.
Brezenoff, a finalist for NPR’s Best-Ever Teen Book feature, is the author of Brooklyn, Burning, a story about two homeless teenagers. The book was listed on the 2012 Best Fiction for Young Adults list by the Young Adult Library Services Association.
The event—part of the Teens Know Best Author Series—is set for 1-2:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 16.
“The Teens Know Best Author Series is the first region-wide author series to focus on writers for teens,” reads a release from Washington County Library. “Working in collaboration with the Teens Know Best Book Club, each of the eight metro public library systems will host an author. It is an opportunity for teens (and adults who love teen fiction) to hear, meet and be inspired by authors who are writing for teens.”
Teens Know Best author events are paid for with money from Minnesota's Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
