Authors Daniel Ehrenhaft and Jacqueline Woodson, along with SLJ blogger Diane Chen, all say that Selene Castrovilla is an author to â€œwatch out for.â€ You and your teens will have that opportunity to â€œwatch out forâ€ Selene at YALSA’s Not-So-Silent Auction on Friday night of Midwinter when her Skype visit will be auctioned.
For those of you who attended the YA Lit Symposium in Albuquerque this past November, you may have met Selene or received one of her rubber chicken keychains. Her young adult novels include Saved by the Music and The Girl Next Door, while she also has written several historical fiction titles focusing on the American Revolution. With a choice of YA titles or titles with a curricular theme, both public and school librarians may find they are competing on the bidding for Castrovilla’s Skype visit.
More information about Selene is available on her website.
