Get Lit!: Patricia McCormick and Emily Danforth Youth Event
Patricia McCormick is the author of five powerful novels with subjects ranging from the psychological suspense in Purple Heart (2009), to teenage substance abuse in My Brother’s Keeper (2006). She has been recognized with numerous awards including one of Best 100 Books of the Year by Publishers Weekly, one of the Top Ten Best Books for Young Adults by the American Library Association, and an ALA Best Book for Teenagers. Her most recent work, Never fall down (2012), tells the true story of an 11-year-old boy who survived the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia by playing music. Archbishop Desmond Tutu called it "One of the most inspiring and powerful books I’ve ever read. Never fall down can teach us all about finding the courage to speak our truth and change the world." Joining her will be Emily Danforth, whose debut novel, The Miseducation of Cameron Post (2012), is currently a finalist for the William C. Morris YA debut award. The coming-of-age story centers on Cameron, a young girl growing up in Montana, whose parents die in a car crash as she struggles with growing up gay. She's sent to live with her grandmother and her conservative aunt, who upon discovering that Cameron has fallen in love with her best girlfriend, send her away to a de-gaying camp. The novel received starred reviews from Kirkus, Booklist, Publisher's Weekly, and School Library Journal, and was praised by an NPR reviewer who called it "a skillfully and beautifully written story that does what the best books do: It shows us ourselves in the lives of others." Both authors will read, sign books, and answer questions.

Women's Work: 2012 Burlington Book Festival (Burlington)
As part of the 2012 Burlington Book Festival, Phoenix Books will be hosting a series of author readings and book signings entitled "Women's Work." We are proud to welcome Hinda Miller, Katharine Britton, Emily Bernard and Emily M. Danforth to our Burlington store. The schedule for Sunday is as follows: 11:00 am - Hinda Miller
Hinda Miller has been a Vermont State Senator for the past ten years. Her memoir, Pearls of a Sultana: What I’ve Learned About Business, Politics and the Human Spirit, shares her experiences as both a political force and as a business owner. Throughout all her ventures, Hinda Miller is guided and anchored by a strong connection to the practice of yoga. Now she is preparing for a new venture as a Sultana, a woman of experience and wisdom who is always practicing, always learning, and always grateful.
Katharine Britton's debut novel, Her Sister's Shadow, tells the story of two sisters, estranged by time, distance and long-kept secrets, who are unexpectedly reunited by a death in the family. The book explores themes of resentment, sisterhood and forgiveness. Publisher’s Weekly called it ”A touching intimate account of painful memories that radically shape lives.”
Emily Bernard is an associate professor of English and ALANA U. S. Ethnic Studies at the University of Vermont. Her acclaimed new work, Carl Van Vechten and the Harlem Renaissance: A Portrait in Black and White, is the story of a white man with a passion for blackness. His role in the black cultural movement known was the Harlem Renaissance was dramatic, intimate and controversial. The book is not an attempt to answer the question of whether Van Vechten helped or hurt the black cultural world over which he wielded much influence. Instead it is a tale about the messy realities of race and the complicated tangle of black and white.
Emily M. Danforth is an assistant professor of English-Creative Writing at Rhode Island College. Her debut novel, The Miseducation of Cameron Post, has received starred reviews from Publishers Weekly, Booklist, Kirkus, and School Library Journal, and was featured in the LA Times, USA Today, and NPR–whose reviewer called it “…a skillfully and beautifully written story that does what the best books do: It shows us ourselves in the lives of others.”
