Pictures from the 2012 Fran Romer Workshop

The 2012 Fran Romer Workshop took place last Friday at the Brentwood Public Library. The theme of the event was RIPPED FROM THE HEADLINES. We had an excellent turn out of YA librarians and enthusiast and were lucky to have Caroline Bock, author LIE, speak with us about her writing process and the creation of LIE. The book discussions on other important titles influenced by current events and hot topics were robust. Here are some photos of the event:
