Teenagers can gain inspiration from two authors of young adult fiction at an online event that Changing Hands Bookstore is offering.
Abigail Johnson, author of “Girl on the Run,” and Kara McDowell, author of “One Way or Another,” will talk about their latest work during this virtual conversation at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 6 through Zoom.
“Girl on the Run” is a thriller about Katelyn, a girl who finds out her mother might not be the person she claims she is and that someone is hunting for both of them. Johnson, a Pennsylvania native who moved to Arizona at age 12, became a tetraplegic after she broke her neck in a car accident at age 17 but she still enjoys bodysurfing in Mexico. She has written several young adult novels.
“One Way or Another” is a holiday romance novel about Paige Collins, a girl who decides to stop allowing her anxiety to keep her from experiencing true love. When she slips on a grocery store floor, her life divides into two, different parallel paths. McDowell graduated from Arizona State University with a bachelor’s degree in English literature.
There is a suggested donation of at least $5 to participate in this event. To register, visit changinghands.com.
