Alert: Brooklyn Book Festival



Sunday, September 12, 2010



This year’s fifth annual Brooklyn Book Festival features some of the most influential and talented names in YA and Kid lit in a wide array of panels, readings and workshops, all happening on THE STOOP (the YA stage geared towards ages 10-18). Join us on Saturday, September 12, 2010, to hear these talented authors, from former National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature Jon Scieszka to two-time National Book Award finalist Adele Griffin to bestselling newcomer Lauren Oliver. Other notable authors include Sara Shepard, Jacqueline WoodsonJenny HanE. Lockhart and Francisco X. Stork.


Happily Ever After

Lauren OliverBefore I Fall (HarperCollins, March 2010); Jenny HanIt’s Not Summer Without You, (Simon & Schuster, April 2010); and Sara ShepardPretty Little Liars series (HarperTeen) talk about characters who are forced to relive their past, to come to terms with haunting memories and who have committed terrible acts.  What are the costs of keeping dark secrets?  What happens when you have to pay for your actions?  How do you figure out how to move forward?  Moderated by author Kirsten Miller.

Concrete Jungle Where Dreams are Made

Laurie Toffler-CorrieThe Life and Opinions of Amy Finawitz (Roaring Brook Press, August 2010); Olugbemisola Rhuday Perkovich8th Grade Superzero (Arthur A. Levine/Scholastic, January 2010); and 2009 Newbery Award winner Rebecca SteadWhen You Reach Me, bring us relatable, inspiring characters embracing challenges with friendships and popularity—while trying to solve a mystery or two—set against very different New York landscapes.

When It All Goes Wrong

Two-time National Book Award finalist Adele GriffinThe Julian Game (August 2010); Tracy WhiteHow I Made it to Eighteen (Roaring Brook Press, June 2010); and Sofia Quintero, Efrain’s Secret (Knopf Books for Young Readers, April 2010) discuss what happens when life gets out of hand, from online stalking to addiction to the lure of living double lives.


Illustrators bring magic to words with the simple stroke of a pencil. Watch award-winning illustrators create from a few energetic prompts from the audience, and hear them discuss the magic behind their illustrative work. Mike CavallaroFoiled (First Second, April 2010), Shane EvansBlack Jack: The Ballad of Jack Johnson (Neal Porter Books, an imprint of Roaring Brook Press, June 2010) and an illustrator to be announced.

About a Boy

Newbery Honor-winning Jacqueline WoodsonPeace, Locomotion (Putnam Books for Young Readers, January 2009); Torrey MaldonadoSecret Saturdays (Putnam Books for Young Readers, April 2010) and an author to be announced offer us a rare look into the minds and hearts of young boys who could really use a second chance.

You’ve Got to be Kidding

Former National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature Jon ScieszkaSpaceheadz (Simon & Schuster, June 2010); National Book Award finalist E. LockhartThe Treasure Map of Boys (Random House, July 2009); and an author to be announced take on the absurdity of life in books and writing and talk about their ways of making us laugh, including hamster space aliens and panicky smart alecks.

Making It

Mitali PerkinsBamboo People (Charlesbridge, July 2010); Francisco X. StorkThe Last Summer of the Death Warriors (Scholastic, March 2010); and Kate Milford, The Boneshaker,bring tales of their characters’ extreme survival to the stage, from a teen soldier in Burma to an orphanage in Mexico.
