Trio to talk young adult fiction during library stops

NORMAN — Readers and fans of the mystery, romance and paranormal fiction genres are invited by the Pioneer Library System to hear from a trio of authors.

Tessa Gratton, Sonia Gensler and Tara Hudson will share their stories and talk in several upcoming panel discussions about novels each has published this year. They’ll be at the Moore Public Library, 225 S. Howard Ave., at 6 p.m. Monday and at the Southwest Oklahoma City Public Library, 2201 SW 134th St., at 7 p.m. Sept. 24.

The authors will speak twice in school appearances in Norman on Sept. 25. They’ll be at Norman High School at 10 a.m. and Norman North High School at 1 p.m.

Non-students interested in attending should check with the school about the visitor policy prior to coming to the presentation.

Gensler, an Oklahoma resident, was the 2012 winner of the Oklahoma Book Award for Young Adult Fiction for “The Revenant,” a book also selected for the 2014 Intermediate Sequoyah Masterlist. Her second novel, “The Dark Between,” was released in August.

Gratton lived throughout the country, growing up before settling in Kansas and getting into writing. She has published several novels, most recently “The Lost Sun” in June.

Hudson, an Oklahoma native, had her latest work, “Elegy,” also published in June. It is the conclusion of the “Hereafter” trilogy, her first published novels.

Their work is geared to teens but also appeals to many adults in combining the dark, supernatural and mysterious into stories for a growing base of fans. Teens and adults are invited to hear their presentation.

The authors’ appearance is part of a tour of Pioneer Library System facilities and several schools in late September.
