Our First SKYPE Author Visit!

Mepham will host its first ever Skype author visit with Sarah Fine on Tuesday, February 26, 2013 at 2:15 p.m. in the library. She is a child psychologist and an author of young adult fiction. Her debut YA novel SANCTUM (Guards of the Shadowlands, Book 1) was released by Marshall Cavendish Children's Books/Amazon Publishing on October 16, 2012. Her next YA sci-fi thriller SCAN (co-authored with Walter Jury), will be published in Fall 2013 by Putnam & Sons/Penguin. SANCTUM has received great reviews (four out of five stars on Goodreads). Here is a brief description from Follett, "When seventeen-year-old Lela Santo's best friend Nadia kills herself and a farewell ritual goes wrong, she finds herself standing in paradise. Determined to save the soul of her best friend, she enters hell and is captured by the Guards, enormous, not-quite-human creatures, whose leader Malachi has his own plans for Lela." We are so excited to host this up-and-coming author. The session will consist of a book reading, brief discussion, Q&A, and raffle all via SKYPE. We will be giving away four copies of her debut novel. This is an ELITE Event and is hosted by the National English Honor Society.
