That's right students! We are so lucky to benefit from her visit to Spartanburg in September. She will be visiting several schools, libraries, and even a college (Converse), and Dorman is one of the lucky places getting a visit. One of her books is on our Cavaliers Read list for 2013-2014, and is up for the award of South Carolina Young Adult Book of the Year.
This past Saturday, I stood in a line at a library conference (Texas Library Association's Annual Conference in Fort Worth, TX) just to get a signed book for our library.
I also attended a session where she was on a panel, and got to hear her (and the others) talk about authoring books related to the south. Come to find out Ruta Sepetys has FAMILY in our area!! She is excited about coming to see all of us.
Be sure to check out her books, Between Shades of Gray and Out of the Easy.
