05.01.2019 | Children’s Book Week: Teen Writing Panel | Free

May 1, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Categories: Class Workshops, Family-Friendly, Literature & Poetry


Join us for a special Children’s Book Week event with authors Antony John and Cole Gibsen, who will host a panel discussion on writing and getting published for teens and adults interested in writing for them!

Antony John is the author of several novels, including “Five Flavors of Dumb,” “Mascot,” and the fantasy trilogy “Elemental.” He crisscrossed the country, living on both coasts, before settling in St. Louis with his family, where he writes full-time. Today he enjoys exploring the city’s neighborhoods, sampling Midwestern food, and watching Fredbird at Cardinals games.

At seventeen Cole Gibsen found herself homeless with only a beat-up Volkswagen and a bag of Goodwill clothing to her name. Because of the reprieve these books gave her from her troubles, Cole vowed to become a writer so she could provide the same escape to readers who needed a break from the reality. Some of Cole’s most recent books include “Risen,” “Life Unaware,” and “Katana.”
