All four books will be launched at a free, all-ages celebration at SPACE on Tuesday, August 16 at 3:30pm!
These books books are the result of the huge dreams and hard work of the fellows–Elizabeth Flanagan, Rylee Sinclair, Raina Sparks, & Kathleen Thomas–in The Telling Room’s Young Emerging Authors fellowship program.
