a Girl banda of popular teen writers at Bellingham library

A trio of popular women writers will appear this weekend as part of a whirlwind U.S. tour promoting the paperback release of their bestselling young adult novels – including the winner of this year’s Printz Award, the top honor for teen literature. Condie is the author of the bestselling dystopian fantasy “Aquaria” and the acclaimed “Matched” trilogy; Wolitzer wrote “Belzhar,” about a boarding school for smart but angst-driven teens; and Nelson’s award-winning “I’ll Give You the Sun” explores the complex relationship between fraternal twins, a boy and a girl – with shocking and heartbreaking results.
