Press Release, Addison Twp. Public Library

Local YA Author Panel at Addison Township Library
As part of its Summer Reading Program, the Addison Township Public Library is excited to host an author panel with four young adult authors from around Michigan:  Ava Jae, Bethany Neal, Laura Wolfe and Sarah Zettel.  The panel will take place on Saturday, July 9 at 4 p.m. and will also include a Q&A with the audience and book signing by the authors.  

Ava Jae’s debut YA novel, “Beyond the Red,” which came out in March, is a sci-fi adventure with aliens, politics, rebellion and romance.  Ava lives in Ann Arbor and is also an editor, as well as being an active blogger/vlogger on all things reading and writing.  

Bethany Neal writes “young adult fiction with a little dark side and a lot of kissing.”  Another Ann Arbor resident, Bethany’s book “My Last Kiss” is the story of a ghost who must discover what really happened on the night of her death.

Laura Wolfe, an equine enthusiast, lives in Milford.  Her YA debut, “Trail of Secrets,” a fascinating mystery set at a fictional Michigan horse camp, was a Finalist in the 2016 Indie Book Awards First Novel Under 80,000 Words category.  She has also recently published a children’s picture book, “Henrietta’s Hoof Polish.”

Sarah Zettel is an award-winning fantasy, science fiction and mystery author, and writes for both adults and teens, having published fourteen novels and many short stories.  Her most recent contributions to the YA genre include the “American Fairy” trilogy, set during the Dust Bowl, and the “Palace of Spies” trilogy, a mystery series in the time of King George I.

“We are thrilled to be featuring such great local talent,” said Addison Township Library Director Jaema Berman.  “We hope this will be a great opportunity for local teens and young adults to see what we have to offer, and to allow them to connect with authors in their communities.”  This event is free and open to the public, but registration is recommended by calling the library at (248) 628-7180.
