Program Description


Join us for a special Summer Reads author event with Whitney Gardner, author, illustrator, and cartoonist. She is the author of the YA novels You’re Welcome, Universe and Chaotic Good, as well as the creator of Fake Blood and Long Distance and the illustrator for Debbie Levy’s Becoming RBG. In her latest, Long Distance, Whitney shares an exceptionally charming middle grade graphic novel about friendships both near and far, far away. To help her settle into her new life in Seattle, her parents send Vega off to summer camp to make new friends. Except Vega is determined to get her old life back. But when her cellphone unexpectedly calls it quits and things at camp start getting stranger and stranger, Vega has no choice but to team up with her bunkmates to figure out what’s going on!

Whitney will be in conversation with Stephanie Cooke, writer of ParaNorthern and the co-writer of Oh My Gods!.
