Last month, the Library was honored to have Angela Johnson as the guest speaker for our annual young adult author visit. So far, Ms. Johnson has over 30 publications ranging from preschool board books to young adult novels, and has won three Coretta Scott King awards, the Ezra Jack Keats New Writer Award, and the Michael L. Printz Award for her novel The First Part Last, which is the second book of the Heaven trilogy.
For the most part, Ms. Johnson spoke about the writing process and offered advice to the future writers in her audience. She also autographed many copies of her books for her fans.
