Join a Q&A session with three successful North Carolina YA and Middle Grade authors. Come get all your writing questions answered! 
 
Brenda is the author of Where I Live. If Linden Rose can follow the rules, no one will ever discover that she is the "homeless girl hiding in front of them."
 
Kati is the author of Brave Enough. Spoiler alert: No one with cancer dies in this story. They do play Uno, shave their head, get stabbed, make new friends, enjoy glitter, attend camp, get kissed (!), and above all else, discover they are brave enough to continue living life.
 
Kwame is the author of the upcoming middle grade fantasy Tristan Strong Punches A Hole In The Sky. A seventh-grade boy accidentally creates a hole into the Midpass, a world where ancient African gods clash with gods of African-American legend. He must race to repair the rip before the monsters wreaking havoc in the Midpass consume the world.
