From Salon hostess & Girls Write Now Mentor Caroline:
Please join us for our signature event on Sunday, June 10th, 4-6 PM, at Barnes & Noble Astor Place in New York City!
The grand culmination of the 2006-07 Girls Write Now season, you won’t want to miss this opportunity to hear the BEST teen writers in New York City read from their brand new anthology This Girl Here, featuring a foreword by Aury Wallington, author of the bestselling young adult novel, Pop! Special Guest Speaker, Jessica Valenti, founder of feministing.com and and author of Full Frontal Feminism, will introduce our girls.
Anthologies will be available for sale from 10am-10pm from June 8-June 10. Come out any time that weekend to meet the Girls Write Now Class of 2007 and, while you’re there, be sure to pick up your special Barnes & Noble vouchers. Use the vouchers to buy any item in Barnes & Noble and a percentage of the sale proceeds go directly to support programming for our 2007-08 season!
All Girls Write Now programming has been 100% free for almost a decade. But we simply cannot continue that way without your help. Whether or not you can attend our event, please keep our girls writing by making a tax-exempt donation today online at www.girlswritenow.org.
