Last night, I was privileged to meet these four amazing authors: Kheryn Callender, Mackenzi Lee, Laura E. Weymouth, and Anna Godbersen. They talked about their new books and about the YA genre. The event was hosted by The King's English Bookshop, but we actually met in an art gallery a couple of doors down from the bookstore. We sat in small circles and got to ask questions. After, we went to the bookshop to get our copies signed by the authors. They were all so kind and gracious.
I went with a couple of my fellow 2019 debut author friends from Utah (Sofiya Pasternack and RuthAnne Snow). If you want to learn more about new Utah authors and their books check out our website.
