Teen Reading Ambassadors Present Joanna Ruth Meyer
October 19, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
WOW Teen Reading Ambassadors invite you to meet Joanna Ruth Meyer.
This conversation focuses on Echo North, which received starred reviews from Kirkus and Publisher’s Weekly as well as being a YALSA BFYA 2020 nominee. In this book, Echo Alkaev’s safe and carefully structured world falls apart when her father leaves for the city and mysteriously disappears. Believing he is lost forever, Echo is shocked to find him half-frozen in the winter forest six months later, guarded by a strange talking wolf–the same creature who attacked her as a child. The wolf presents Echo with an ultimatum: If she lives with him for one year, he will ensure her father makes it home safely. But there is more to the wolf than Echo realizes.
Meyer writes YA Fantasy. Her book, Beneath the Haunting Sea, was described by Kirkus as “Epic, musical, and tender.” When she’s not writing, she teaches piano lessons, drinks copious amounts of tea, reads thick books, and dreams of winter.
The program includes a brief presentation, a question and answer period and time for snacks and personal interactions with the author. The UA BookStores offers books for sale and autographing during this event. The workshop also includes two free hours of professional development, so invite your favorite teacher.
Free parking is available at the surface parking lot north of the intersection of First and Vine. Paid parking is available at the Second St. Garage next door to the College of Education. Located just off of the 2nd St. streetcar stop.
