Local Author Visit: Jen Petro-Roy

The Library is so excited to have our former Teen Librarian, Jen Petro-Roy, return – this time as a published author! Don’t miss her visit on Monday, March 12 at 7pm. Jen will talk about the inspiration behind her debut novel, P.S. I Miss You, her writing process, and her path to publication. A book signing and Q&A will follow the talk. Books will be available for purchase at the event.

Children, teens, and adults are all welcome at this event. P.S. I Miss You is a middle-grade novel suggested for grades 4-6, but anyone interested in children’s literature, writing, and publication is encouraged to attend! We’re asking for advanced registration to help with a headcount, but drop-ins are welcome too. Please register here if you plan on coming.

P.S. I Miss You comes out on March 6 and has already received great reviews. The novel is told through a series of letters secretly sent by 11-year-old Evie to her sister Cilla, who has been sent to stay with a distant great-aunt.

Acclaimed children’s author Kate Messner writes, “A heartbreaking but empowering story that’s impossible to forget… Readers will love Evie’s smart, funny voice and will recognize themselves in her worries, her questions, and her hopes.”

Jen also has two forthcoming books in 2019, so stay tuned!
