In discussion with Jericho Town librarian, Lisa Buckton
Event date: 
Thursday, November 1, 2018 - 7:00pm

Fierce Heroines authors and book covers

Join us for an evening with three fierce authors who write fierce heroines: Julie Dao (Rise of the Empress series), Amy Rose Capetta (The Brilliant Death, Entangled, Unmade), and Katherine Arden (Small Spaces, Winternight Trilogy).  Jericho Town librarian Lisa Buckton will moderate a conversation surrounding writing and reading young adult and middle grade literature.

Julie Dao ( is a proud Vietnamese American who was born in upstate New York. She studied medicine in college, but came to realize blood and needles were her Kryptonite. By day, she worked in science news and research; by night, she wrote books about heroines unafraid to fight for their dreams, which inspired her to follow her passion of becoming a published author. Her debut book was Forest of a Thousand Lanterns. Julie lives in New England. Follow her on Twitter @jules_writes.

Amy Rose Capetta has written several novels for young adults and holds an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from VCFA. Once upon a time her father’s family lived in Italy, in a small town in the mountainside. Now Amy Rose lives in her very own mountains in Vermont, with her partner and their young son.

Born in Austin, Texas, Katherine Arden spent a year of high school in Rennes, France. Following her acceptance to Middlebury College in Vermont, she deferred enrollment for a year in order to live and study in Moscow. At Middlebury, she specialized in French and Russian literature. After receiving her BA, she moved to Maui, Hawaii, working every kind of odd job imaginable, from grant writing and making crêpes to guiding horse trips. Arden's debut novel, The Bear and the Nightingale was an IndieNext pick. Currently she lives in Vermont, but really, you never know.
