Young Adult Author Visit
on Tuesday, October 22, 2019 at 7:00 pm
The library will host the Young Adult Author Visit on Tuesday, October 22nd at 7:00 p.m. in the Round Room. This year our author is Meredith Russo.
Meredith Russo was born, raised, and lives in Tennessee. She started living as her true self in late 2013 and never looked back. If I Was Your Girl was partially inspired by her experiences as a trans woman. Like Amanda (the protagonist of If I Was Your Girl), Meredith is a gigantic nerd who spends a lot of her time obsessing over video games and Star Wars.” Meredith’s book If I Was Your Girl has won numerous awards and acclaim, including being a Stonewall Book Award Winner, Walter Dean Myers Honor Book for Outstanding Children's Literature, a Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year, a Kirkus Reviews Best Book of the Year, a Zoella Book Club Selection, a Goodreads Choice Award Finalist, a Bustle Best YA Book of the Year, IndieNext Top 10 List, one of Flavorwire's 50 Books Every Modern Teenager Should Read, and of our own Arkansas Teen Book Award in 2018!
