Looking for YA/Teen readers? Bring your questions

Wouldn’t you love to write what your readers want to read? Join us at the April 2 meeting of the Orlando Area Writers Group (Florida Writers Association) and find out exactly what young adult/teen readers look for in a book. (You’ll likely find out they look for the same qualities any reader looks for.)

Lisa Blue, YA librarian at the Winter Park Public Library and leader of the library’s Teen Book Club, will be introducing some active readers to us. They will share some favorite readings, some favorite books, and some of the qualities they look for in a book. Then, they’ll be glad to answer questions that you have for them:

  • Do they look for dialogue?
  • Do they look for certain character types?
  • Do they look for setting or plot or a specific genre?
  • Do they look at cover art, inside illustrations, page and text size?

You’ve always wanted to ask someone; now, you have that someone to ask!

Join these YA/teen readers and the Orlando Writers Group on Wednesday, April 2, from 6:30 to 8:30 PM at the University Club of Winter Park. The University Club is located at 841 Park Avenue North, on the northwest corner of Park and Webster Avenue. The program is free and open to the public. For additional information, visit the group blog at http://www.fwa-orlando.org or contact Stephen Evans, group leader-ImYourEditor@hotmail.com or 407-898-4299.
