Author Visit: Shannon Dittemore

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Orangevale Library
Join us as we host local author Shannon Dittemore, young adult author (Angel Eyes trilogy and “Winter, White and Wicked,” out fall 2020), speaker, and mentor who teaches introduction to writing and the publishing industry to junior high and high school students. She also writes for Go Teen Writers, an award-winning blog dedicated to the growth and instruction of young writers.

"Winter, White and Wicked" tells the story of an orphan girl who makes a quiet living driving rigs across the frozen expanse of an island cursed by eternal winter. When her best friend disappears, Sylvi teams up with a smuggler and his crew of criminals to carry a mysterious haul across the island in exchange for the location of her friend. In the process, Sylvi gets drawn into an ancient feud she's worked hard to avoid. If she makes the wrong choice, she'll lose more than the independence she values so highly -- she'll lose her best friend and the island she calls home.

Motherhood So White with author Nefertiti Austin

6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Central Library
Galleria Main Hall
Join us for an evening with author Nefertiti Austin. Motherhood So White - A Memoir of Race, Gender and Parenting in America is the story of Nefertiti's fight to create the family she always knew she was meant to have and the story of motherhood that all American families need right now. In this unflinching account of her parenting journey, Nefertiti examines the history of adoption in the African-American community, faces off against stereotypes of single, Black motherhood and confronts the reality of raising children of color in racially charged, modern-day America.

Book sales and signing of Motherhood So White will follow the author's presentation.
