Not Your Mother’s Verse: Ellen Hopkins, Kristin Clark, and Craig Lew

Co-presented by Not Your Mother’s Book Club™

Poetry often gets a bad rap. Boring, archaic, irrelevant. These three writers—from newbie to icon of the form—will set the record straight. Verse novels are intimate, hard-hitting, and transformative. Come for a reading, stay for a conversation about craft and book signing. Not Your Mother’s Book Club™ is a monthly literary salon for Bay Area teenagers that also offers online author interviews, online contests, and in-school author events. Follow them on Twitter @NYMBC.
