Cindy Pon is the author of Silver Phoenix, which was named one of the Top Ten Fantasy and Science Fiction Books for Youth by the American Library Association’s Booklist, and one of 2009’s best Fantasy, Science Fiction, and Horror by VOYA. Her most recent duology Serpentine and Sacrifice were both Junior Library Guild selections and received starred reviews from Kirkus and School Library Journal. Want, also a Junior Library Guild selection, is a near-future thriller set in Taipei. Ruse, the sequel, is slated for spring 2019.
On Wednesday, April 11 at 3:30 PM, students from each of the area high schools will meet at their school libraries for a live, multi-user video conference with Cindy. Before the event, each group of students will receive copies of Cindy’s newest book, Want. They will read the book and meet with their school librarians for a group discussion. Each group will bring questions to the video conference, where they will take turns speaking to Cindy. Contact your school librarian to participate.
