Award-winning authors, Kate Hannigan and Franny Billingsley, will close out the Holiday Book Fair with an Author Chat. Both authors write for young to middle grade readers, and parents and students at all grades are welcome to attend.
Kate Hannigan is the author of the historical fiction novel, The Detective’s Assistant (winner of the 2016 Golden Kite award) and the popular series, Cupcake Cousins. A former journalist with the Dallas Morning News and the San Francisco Chronicle, Kate now lives in Chicago and is a Lab parent!
Franny Billingsley is the author of three award-winning children’s fantasy novels, Well Wished, The Folk Keeper, and Chime, and the picture book Big Bad Bunny. Franny is also the manager of children’s literature at 57th Street Books.
For the Author Chat, Kate and Franny will read from their work and then interview each other — about where ideas come from, how to get started, books that inspire us, books they want to write, books they read as kids …. For any reader or aspiring fiction writer, this event promises to be informative and inspiring! Books will be available for purchase and signing.
The PA is incredibly lucky and appreciative to have them!
