Read Up Greenville is a daylong celebration of young readers and writers and books and authors in Young Adult (think Harry Potter ; YA is HUGE) and Middle Grade, also huge. The Peace Center event starts at 9 a.m. Oct. 20, and you can get more information here . Meantime, of course, Emrys is involved.
We not only sponsored a contest for writers ages 10 to 18,we’re also sponsoring one of the guest writers. Tiffany D. Jackson , award-winning YA author of Allegedly and Monday’s Not Coming , will be among two dozen national scribes on hand at ReadUp. And in conjunction with Fiction Addiction, we’re also bringing her to Sterling Community Center, 113 Minus St., where we’ll give away 40 copies of her books to Greenville High School attendees.
