Worst-Case Collin Launch Party
It's September which means a book near and dear to my heart will finally be hitting shelves 🧡 Six years ago, I began drafting this story in the front seat of my car in a local grocery store parking lot while my infant daughters napped in their car seats. Over a span of months, I worked in stolen, precious 15-minute intervals, writing one poem at a time, trying to maintain a narrative across countless interruptions (and intense new-baby sleep deprivation). Slowly, a book-shaped thing emerged. It was slightly odd and unconventional, but I loved it deeply. It made me cry and laugh, and cry some more 🧡 Thanks to a wonderfully supportive crew of critique partners, agents, editors, designers, and publishing pros, WORST-CASE COLLIN is finally becoming reality. And I can't think of a better place to celebrate its launch than at @silverunicornbooks!
On Wednesday Sept 29, 2021 @ 6pm in Acton, MA, I'll be chatting with special guest @rajanilarocca (if you haven't read her gorgeous #MG verse novel RED, WHITE, AND WHOLE you really must!). Join us for a lively conversation about poetry, heartfelt middle grade novels, navigating between STEM careers and writing for kids, and lots more. Hope to see you there!
To keep everyone safe, the event will take place outside the bookstore. Free & kid-friendly (+ snacks!) 📚 Signed & personalized books will be available. If conditions change, the event will be virtual. For more information, please visit: https://www.silverunicornbooks.com/?q=h.calevent&eid=13747
