November is the month for a couple of important conferences: one for school librarians and one for English teachers, adults who I hope will have a chance to read my book and recommend it to their students. I was delighted to see that Penguin Young Readers had included advanced reading copies of my book at these events:
First, at the American Association of School Librarians conference November 9 through 11 (third shelf down, on the far right):
and later at the National Council of Teachers of English convention November 16 through 19 (fourth shelf, on the far left):
I’m very honored that Penguin Young Readers is treating The Mad Wolf’s Daughter as a lead title in this way, and thrilled to know that school librarians and English teachers—some of the most important people in my childhood—will have an early peek at my debut novel.
