Books & Bagels: Summer Special with Author Stephanie Burgis

Wed, 07/30/2014 - 2:00pm to 3:30pm
East Lansing Public Library - Children's Storytime Room

Join East Lansing native Stephanie Burgis for a special Books & Bagels session. Please read one of the books in the trilogy ahead of time. All ages welcome.

The East Lansing Public Library (ELPL) will host author and East Lansing native Stephanie Burgis on Wednesday, July 30 from 2-3:30 p.m. for a special summer Books & Bagels event. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet Burgis, discuss her Kat, Incorrigible trilogy and hear how she decided to become a writer. Although the Kat, Incorrigible trilogy is geared toward readers in the 9- to 13-year-old age range, all ages are welcome to meet Burgis and enjoy bagels donated by the Panera in Frandor.

Burgis grew up in East Lansing, but currently lives in Wales with her husband and their children. Before becoming a full-time writer, she studied music as a Fulbright Scholar in Vienna, Austria and worked as a website editor for a British opera company. “Growing up in East Lansing as a book-crazy kid and wannabe writer, I spent as much time in the public library as I could,” Burgis said. “It was one of the most important and beloved places in my childhood. It’s still a touchstone place for me even now, when I live in a different country, because almost all the books and genres that have most influenced me as a writer were first discovered by browsing the shelves there, with the warm encouragement of the wonderful librarians.”
