Saturday, April 14th, 2pm
Ms. Sternick and Mr. Wilinsky will discuss their young adult novel SNOWSISTERS. Books will be available for purchase and signing. Refreshments will be served. Registration recommended.
“SNOWSISTERS offers a delightful and much-needed opportunity for LGBTQIA readers to find themselves starring within the pages of a novel, but the message is a universal one: We are the architects of our own stories, and we are the ones who decide when and where these stories are told. A wonderful, important debut.” – Jodi Picoult, NYT Bestselling Author
