Well, our Writers’ League members are certainly cranking out the books! Our friend Jacqueline Kelly’s first novel, The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate, will be officially launched on Tuesday, May 12, at BookPeople in Austin. The party starts at 7:30 p.m., so come on out and support Jackie and pick up yet another great read!
As some of you may recall, Jackie met her agent at a past Writers’ League Agents Conference. Her book was just released from Henry Holt this month, and it received a starred review in Publishers Weekly: “Callie’s transformation into an adult and her unexpected bravery make for an exciting and enjoyable read. Kelly’s rich images and setting, believable relationships and a touch of magic take this story far.”
Way to go, Jackie!
