YA book launch: Between Two Worlds

Member Katherine Kirkpatrick will launch her YA novel BETWEEN TWO WORLDS (Wendy Lamb Books) at Third Place Books in Bothell on Saturday, April 26. Publisher's Weekly gave the book a starred review, calling it an "engrossing work of historical fiction." Show up that evening at 6:30 p.m. for snacks, book trivia, and prizes. She'll also be making a blog tour as part of the launch; see the full schedule here.

In a recent blog post, Katherine wrote, "There is nothing more depressing for an author than to sit at a table with a forced smile in front of a pyramid of books, facing a room full of vacant chairs. I’m happy to say I’ve found a middle path, a joyous way of celebrating new books that comes in second to my mother’s former parties." She goes on to explain SCBWI WWA's twice-yearly event called Inside Story, adding, "I am so grateful to Laura McGee Kvasnosky and George Shannon for creating this wonderful community forum where we can give ourselves a boost."

(The next Inside Story will be held on May 6, from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m., at Mockingbird Books, too.)
