Join us for a young adult debut author panel featuring #DVpit success stories Kat Cho (Wicked Fox), Isabel Sterling (These Witches Don't Burn) and Michelle Ruiz Keil (All of Us With Wings), moderated by Claribel Ortega (Ghost Squad)!
Kat Cho's Wicked Fox is an addictive fantasy-romance set in modern-day Seoul, featuring Miyoung, a nine-tailed fox who devours the energy of men to survive, and Jihoon, a human boy who needs her help, in what Entertainment Weekly calls a “vibrant debut novel . . . an utterly original take on the young-adult fantasy.”
These Witches Don't Burn is Isabel Sterling's delightful, suspenseful debut--equal parts sweet romance and thrilling mystery. When teenage Elemental witch Hannah suspects a Blood Witch threatens the safety of her Salem, MA community, she must join forces with her ex-girlfriend before her coven--and her chances with a new girl--are destroyed.
In Michelle Ruiz Keil's debut novel All of Us with Wings, Xochi accepts a job as governess to a wealthy family in a bid to escape a troubled past--but when she and her young ward accidentally summon ancient creatures devoted to avenging the wrongs of Xochi’s adolescence, no one is safe--not the family she’s chosen, nor the one she left behind. Named a Barnes & Noble Most Anticipated #OwnVoices YA Book of 2019, All of Us with Wings explores love, found family, and healing from trauma, set in in a world of a magical realism.
This Debut Voices panel will be moderated by Claribel Ortega, author of the forthcoming Ghost Squad (April 2020), an action packed supernatural thriller that's Coco meets Stranger Things with a hint of Ghostbusters.
