Fierce Reads Tour!

The Fierce Reads tour kicked off May 9, 2017 and Cleveland's own Cuyahoga County Public Library was the first stop! Adam and I got to moderate a panel discussion with three incredible Young Adult authors: Scott Westerfeld, Erin Beaty, and Taran Matharu. Kristen Orlando was originally scheduled but was ill the night of our event so she is not part of the interview.
