YA/fantasy author Laura Ruby will visit Ball State University on September 25, 2019 from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in Art and Journalism Building (AJ) 225. This event is free and open to the public and is sponsored by the Creating Writing Program.
Ruby will read some of her work, including an excerpt from her novel Bone Gap, which received the 2016 Printz Award and was a finalist for the 2015 National Book Award. As a writer for adults, teenagers, and children, she will discuss the differences between writing for these different audiences.
Additionally, she regularly presents at writing workshops for both children and adults and works for the Masters in Writing for Children Program at Hamline University. This is a great opportunity for students to learn about a Midwest writer, as Ruby currently lives in the Chicago area.
Some of Ruby’s popular novels include:
- York: The Clockwork Ghosts (2019)
- York: The Shadow Cipher (2017)
- Bone Gap (2015)
- Lily’s Ghosts (2011)
- The Wall and the Wing (2006)
