The Ivy Bookshop
The Ivy is thrilled to be hosting Rita Williams-Garcia for a reading and signing. Rita is the New York Times bestselling author of novels for young adults and middle grade readers. Her most recent, Clayton Byrd Goes Underground, is a powerful and heartfelt novel about loss, family, and love. Gone Crazy in Alabama ends the saga of the Gaither sisters, who appear in One Crazy Summer and P.S. Be Eleven.
Rita’s novels have been recipients of numerous awards, including the Coretta Scott King Award, National Book Award Finalists, Newbery Honor Book, Junior Library Guild, and the Scott O’Dell Prize for Historical Fiction. She served on faculty at the Vermont College of Fine Arts Writing for Children Master’s in Fine Arts Program and she resides in Queens, New York.
The Ivy is grateful to Rita Williams-Garcia and Friends School of Baltimore for making this event and a visit to Lillie May Carroll Jackson Charter School possible.
