Breaking the YA Mold: An evening with Cammie McGovern and Julie Murphy is for teens seventh through twelfth grades to check out the work of these authors, who both burst onto the scene in 2014 with their debut YA novels. In Cammie McGovern’s “A Step Toward Falling,” the characters have memorable voices, especially Belinda, a character with developmental disabilities. In Julie Murphy’s “Dumplin’,” readers meet Will, a self-proclaimed fat girl who has always been at home in her own skin. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. A discussion with the authors is followed by a book signing. Books are available for purchase at the event. Co-sponsored with the Book Stall.
