The Victoria Children’s Literature Roundtable is featuring author Karen Rivers for it’s next program on Monday, April 16, 2012 at 7:30 pm at Nellie McClung Library at (Cedar Hill & McKenzie).

Karen Rivers is a fabulous author who has written for middle school, young adult, and adult audiences. She’s a master of the first person narrative that young adult audiences so often find appealing, and she uses it to put her readers in the driver’s seat along with  her quirky characters.  She’ll be talking about how she found her “dream job” as a writer, but anyone who knows Karen or has read her books, wil know that she hasn’t found, but created her dream job through well developed stories that are carefully crafted.

Her most recent novels are What is Real, the XYZ Trilogy, and Barely Hanging On.
