Everyone
No registration required.

Help us welcome published author Amy K. Nichols back to the Foothills Branch Library! Do you ever wonder where science fiction authors get their ideas? Or how much science in science fiction novels is fact? Are you interested in researching and writing your own science fiction stories? In this workshop we’ll discuss researching and writing sci-fi stories, and ways authors narrow the gap between science and fiction.

Open to teens ages 12-18.

This program will be presented by Amy K. Nichols, Glendale Public Library's Writer-in-Residence.  Amy K. Nichols is the author of the young adult science fiction Duplexity series (Now That You’re Here and While You Were Gone), published by Knopf Books for Young Readers. She has served as a mentor with the Your Novel Year program at the Virginia G. Piper Center for Creative Writing, and has led workshops at the Piper Writers Studio. She regularly facilitates discussions and workshops for young writers at libraries and schools around the valley. Insatiably curious, Amy dabbles in art and quantum physics, and has a long list of things she wants to learn before she dies. She lives with her family in Peoria, AZ.

Registration may be required for this event.  Contact the host library at 623-930-3837 for more information.
