LITERATURE WEEKEND IN THE CITY
Join the award-winning author of Jasper Jones as he talks about his latest novel, Honeybee, a heart-wrenching coming-of-age tale about a young person who just wants to be seen. Rendered in the most poignant detail, this book is a sweetly nostalgic and relatable tale about growing up and getting wise.
