Programming Spotlight: Big Read 2017 Panel

Our 2017 panel consisted of a diverse group of authors, as pictured left to right; Len Vlahos, Laura Stamper, Mrs. Trevaskis (Bronx Hope Librarian), Selene Castrovilla, Catherine Stine, Heather Bao, and Heather Swain.

New York City Teen Author Festival (NYCTAF) completed its 10th annual event on March 26th. As part of NYC’s largest young adult literature (YA) event, Bronx Hope hosted a Big Read author panel through collaboration with Senior YA Librarian from The Bronx Library Center, Katie Fernandez.                  

Our author panel discussion featured six authors of young adult literature.  Each author spoke about the type of writing they do, followed by an author reading, with each one reading an excerpt up to a full chapter from their book. At the conclusion of the presentations, students were able to ask questions. --Allison Trevaskis
