Young Adult Author comes to Town Book Store

The Town Book Store on Broad St. in Westfield, NJ is hosting an author meet and greet this Saturday (April 30th) with local young-adult author Ofer Aronskind.  If you happen to be in the area, here’s your chance to speak with a real – live – published author (wow…) in the young-adult genre.  You don’t even have to pay a conference fee to do it!  Not to mention, the Town Book Store is a lovely place to waste time on a lazy, hot, Saturday afternoon.

Here’s the bio the Town Book Store published:

Ofer Aronskind
Saturday, April 30, 2011

The Town Book Store in Westfield will host a Meet & Greet with Ofer Aronskind, author of four young adult books on Saturday, April 30, 2011 from 2-4 PM. Short Hills, NJ resident Ofer Aronskind remembers what it was like to be 12 years old: the challenges of middle school, making new friends, attending summer camp for the first time, having your first crush. By drawing on events from his own life, as well as on those of his three teenage sons, he has been able to vividly recreate some of life’s most memorable experiences in his young-adult novels.

Aronskind’s primary goal was to write books that boys especially would want to read. His writing frequently draws upon his own life experiences, as well as those of his sons. His first two books, Summer Sleep-Away and That Same Summer, are loosely based on adventures and anecdotes from the summer camp that his family operated in The Berkshires of Western Massachusetts.
