The Newport Beach Public Library invites teenage readers to meet authors Jennifer Niven and Nicole Yoon on Sept. 12 at 3 p.m. in the Central Library Friends Room, 1000 Avocado Ave.
Author Jennifer Niven introduces her debut novel in Young Adult fiction with her new book “All the Bright Places,“ a compelling and exhilarating story about a girl who learns to live from a boy who intends to die.
Nicole Yoon’s debut novel tells the story of a girl who’s literally allergic to the outside world, and has never left her house.
Both authors have tackled tough subjects and will host a discussion with teens about their books and the challenges facing the teens they write about.
Event participation is free. Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis, limited by room capacity. Parents should be advised that mature subject matter will be discussed.
Books will be available for purchase and signing after the presentation, courtesy of Whale of a Tale Children’s Bookshoppe.
The Newport Beach Public Library presents a variety of programs that foster cultural arts enrichment.
