About the event:
Hayley Chewins will talk about the process of publishing her debut middle grade novel, The Turnaway Girls, which was selected as one of the Best Middle Grade Books of 2018 by Kirkus Reviews and deemed one of the best feminist books for young readers by the American Library Association. The Turnaway Girls is also an Exclusive Books Recommended Read for April and received a starred review from both Kirkus and Publishers Weekly. It has been published across the English-speaking world with Candlewick Press and Walker Books, and translation rights have sold in three territories. There will be plenty of time for questions and comments.
