We are delighted that one of our favorite area YA authors, Joelle Charbonneau,will  join us to lead  a writing workshop for ages 12 - 16. The author of The Testing Trilogy, among others, Joelle is touring bookstores to celebrate her new book, the contemporary YA thriller Time Bomb. Find out more about the new book, learn writing tips and secrets from a best-selling author, and work on some of your own writing. All materials are provided.   

Time Bomb: A congressman's daughter who has to be perfect. A star quarterback with a secret. A guy who's tired of being ignored. A clarinet player who's done trying to fit in. An orphaned rebel who wants to teach someone a lesson. A guy who wants people to see him, not his religion. 

They couldn't be more different, but before the morning's over, they'll all be trapped in a school that's been rocked by a bombing. When they hear that someone inside is the bomber, they'll also be looking to one another for answers. 

Told from multiple perspectives, Time Bomb will keep readers guessing about who the bomber could be--and what motivated such drastic action.

Joelle Charbonneau began telling stories as an opera singer, but these days she finds her voice through writing. She lives near Chicago with her husband and son, and when she isn't writing, she works as an acting and vocal coach.
