Stories that Let You Choose!Sunday, May 7 | 12:00 PM - 12:45 PM
Young Readers Stage
If you like science, turn to page 27; if you like adventure, turn to page 19; if you like spy novels, turn to page 32. And if you like all of the above? Stick around, because you’re in exactly the right place to meet authors whose books let you make all the important choices! Lily Simonson (Choose Your Own Adventure: Antarctica), Rana Tahir (Choose Your Own Adventure: Stranger Things Heroes and Monsters), and Andy Musser and Amy Seto Forrester (Search for a Giant Squid: Pick Your Path) will reveal how they build their narratives, how they draw readers in and keep them turning pages . . . and how they come up with as many as 25 possible endings! No matter what other adventures your book festival day has in store, you’ll definitely want to choose this one, hosted by Jessica Lee, District Library Coordinator for Berkeley Unified. Ages 7–12.
