Story time with five excellent authors and illustrators! They will be reading and signing their books. Authors include: Josh Funk; Emilie Boon; Ioana Hobal; Nancy Tupper Ling; and Annie Cronin Romano. This is sure to be a lot of fun!

A panel of middle-grade authors will be speaking and signing their books. Panelists include: Elly Swartz (who came to Lawrence School last year!); Sarah Jean Horwitz; Lauren Magaziner; Susan Tan; and Jarrett Lerner. Their topic is "The Middle Grade Years: How Books Help Readers Discover Who They are and Where They Fit". This is a great way to hear about lots of new titles all in one sitting!
