Young Adult Fiction: It’s Not Just for the Young

Last year’s Mystery Panel at the Green Hills Library was a huge success and we just know that this year’s topic Young Adult Fiction will be just as amazing. Join us Saturday, February 23, 2019 to learn why young adult fiction is not just for the young from award winning YA authors Tracy Barrett and Sharon Cameron.

Tracy Barrett has written more than twenty books for children and young adults. A grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to study medieval women writers led to the writing of her first novel, the award-winning Anna of Byzantium (Delacorte). Her most recent publications are a contemporary YA novel, Freefall Summer, which draws on her own skydiving adventures; a middle-grade fantasy entitled Marabel and the Book of Fate; The Song of Orpheus: The Greatest Greek Myths You Never Heard, a collection of little-known Greek myths; and the popular middle-grade series The Sherlock Files.

Sharon Cameron was born and raised in Nashville. She has been a classical piano teacher, a full-time mom, a part-time genealogist, chair of a non-profit for local theater group and a coordinator of the Society for Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators Midsouth Conference. Her most recent book, The Forgetting hit #1 on the New York Times Bestseller list for ebooks. Her other works include Rook, A Spark Unseen, and The Dark Unwinding.
