Teen and Mother Co-Authors a Hit!
On Friday, July 18th we enjoyed hearing from Teen Author Bethanie Borst, and Amie Borst, her mother and Co-author of the new, nationally acclaimed “Cinderskella”. They tolds us how they began writing books together, and gave many hints about the process. We laughed through the telling of their mistakes and successes. It was an inspiration to those present- especiallly to aspiring young authors! The next book in their series, “Little Dead Riding Hood”, is currently in publication. Kids and Teens, visit Amie’s website for more book-writing guidance and inspiration! Keep an eye out for more author talks in our Canal Street Author Series!
