I saw Gennifer speak at one of my first local SCBWI meetings many years ago at Redwood High School. She was lovely, helpful and encouraging to all. She went on to publish several books, including the delightful Al Capone series. So it is really wonderful that she is able to come back to our local Marin meeting to speak once again, after so many award-winning books. She is just now, on a book tour, for her newest book, Al Capone Does My Homework, a wonderful middle grade book about a boy who grows up on Alcatraz Island during the time of Al Capone. I couldn’t put down her first two Al Capone books, and I doubt I will be able to put this one down, too. Join us at The Depot Bookstore and Cafe on Thursday evening, September 12, 7 – 9 pm to hear her speak on “Tricks of the Trade – Fiction Writing for Tweens.” To learn more, go to http://tinyurl.com/mf6q9wq
