Author trio to talk young adult fiction during library stops

MOORE — Authors to speak

Readers and fans of the mystery, romance and paranormal fiction genres are invited to the Moore and Southwest Oklahoma City Public Libraries to hear from a trio of talented authors.

Tessa Gratton, Sonia Gensler and Tara Hudson will share their stories and talk about novels each has published in 2013 in a pair of panel discussions. They’ll be at the Moore Public Library, 225 S. Howard Ave., at 6 p.m. Sept. 23, and at the Southwest Oklahoma City Public Library, 2201 SW 134th St., at 7 p.m. Sept. 24.

Gensler, an Oklahoma resident, was the 2012 winner of the Oklahoma Book Award for Young Adult Fiction for “The Revenant,” a book also selected for the 2014 Intermediate Sequoyah Masterlist. Her second novel, “The Dark Between,” was released in August.

Gratton lived throughout the country growing up before settling in Kansas and getting into writing. She has published several novels, most recently “The Lost Sun” in June.

Hudson, an Oklahoma native, had her latest work, “Elegy,” also published in June. It is the conclusion of the “Hereafter” trilogy, her first published novels.

“I love visiting middle schools, high schools, universities and libraries,” Gensler said. “There’s nothing better than chatting with readers and writers of all ages.”

Their work is geared to teens but also appeals to many adults in combining the dark, supernatural and mysterious into stories for a growing base of fans. Teens and adults are invited to hear their presentation.

The authors’ appearance is part of a tour of Pioneer Library System facilities and several schools in late September.

Book sale set

The Friends of the Moore Public Library will host their annual Book Sale Sept. 26-29 at the library, 225 S. Howard Ave. Proceeds from the sale go to help the Friends in their support of library programs throughout the year.
