LIVE in Your Living Room: Writing Wisdom with Polly Horvath [VIRTUAL]
Friday, October 23 at 2 p.m.–2:45 p.m.Free
Join Polly Horvath for a delightful chat about the writing life and Pine Island Home, her new book set in B.C.
Polly’s writing is pure comfort and warmth for all ages. She makes everyday things magical while also giving readers the sense that she’s up to something, that she might pull the rug out from under you at any moment.
Polly has won numerous awards including a National Book Award, Newbery Honor, Toronto Dominion Award, International White Raven, Canadian Library Association’s Young Adult Book of the Year, short-listed for Germany’s most prestigious literature award, the Deutscher Jugendliteraturpreis, the Writer’s Trust Vicky Metcalfe Award for her body of work, and many others. Her books have been New York Times and Publishers Weekly bestsellers and Oprah picks. She is translated into over twenty-five languages and her books are taught in children’s literature curricula in North America and internationally.
