Two Youth Authors, twice the stories!

Thursday, June 6th, 2019, 6 p.m.

Join New Hampshire authors Amy Makechnie and Susan Carlton as they chat about their middle grade and young adult novels, The Unforgettable Guinevere St. Clair, and In the Neighborhood of True!

In The Unforgettable Guinevere St. Clair, a ten-year-old girl is determined to find her missing neighbor, but the answers lead her to places and people she never expected—and maybe even one she’s been running away from—in this gorgeous debut novel that’s perfect for fans of The Thing About Jellyfish.

In In the Neighborhood of True, we find a powerful story of love, identity, and the price of fitting in or speaking out.
“The story may be set in the past, but it couldn’t be a more timely reminder that true courage comes not from fitting in, but from purposefully standing out . . . and that to find out who you really are, you have to first figure out what you’re not.” —Jodi Picoult, New York Times bestselling author of A Spark of Light and Small Great Things
