Cynthia Leitich Smith at Teen Second Life!


from the YALSA Blog—VERY cool news!

Children’s and Young Adult Author, Cynthia Leitich  Smith will stop by Teen Second Life on Tuesday, February 24 at 1pm PST to discuss her newly released book, Eternal which she describes as a gothic fantasy. She has decided to explore the medium of Second Life since it’s a ‘very contemporary and very ‘now’ space’ as are her books. All teens, ages 13-17 are  invited to sign up for a free account and teleport to Eye4You Alliance Island. If you’re not able to catch her live, a transcript of the event will be saved.

Another online (Teen Second Life on Sparta Island, Second Life for adults at the Bookhendge, radio via iTunes, or the  web) opportunity regarding teens and books will take place this Monday from 5p-6:30p EST. Teens from the Eva Perry Public Library Mock Printz Club and a YA Lit class from NC State University will come together to talk about what they think are the latest and greatest YA reads.

Don’t forget you can follow Cynthia on the web at:
