It's two YA authors for the price of one! Book now for the 2011-2012 school year and beyond!

"From Classics to Contemporary:" a joint presentation offered by Cynthia Leitich Smith, author of the Tantalize series (inspired by Dracula by Bram Stoker (1897)) and Jennifer Ziegler, author of Sass & Serendipity (inspired by Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen (1811)).

The authors will discuss how they were inspired by these classics, why Stoker and Austen's themes are still relevant to teens/YAs today, the ongoing conversation of books over the generations, and much more.

Contact Dayton Bookings for more information and to schedule.

Looks like an awesome tour. I could seriously LIVE at Books of Wonder! And what a great idea to team up with Jennifer Z. for "new fiction inspired by literary classics" school visits. I'd be interested to hear more about them as you get bookings!

Cynthia Leitich Smith said...

Thanks so much! If you're in the area, I hope you'll swing by one of the events. Should be fun. And yes, Jenny and are very excited about this idea! I'm glad you think it's a good one.
