At 2 p.m. Saturday, March 4, young adult author and local columnist Jennifer Bardsley will visit the Everett Public Library for an author talk and book signing. Ms. Bardsley has written two books, Genesis Girl and Damaged Goods for the young adult/crossover audience. This event will take place in the auditorium at Everett’s Main library, 2702 Hoyt Ave.
Genesis Girl features Vestal Blanca, who has spent her entire childhood at Tabula Rasa School where she’s been protected from the Internet. Blanca has never been online and doesn’t even know how to text. Her lack of a virtual footprint makes her extremely valuable, and upon graduation, Blanca and those like her are sold to the highest bidders.
Bardsley’s appearance is part of the Library’s annual community read, Everett Reads!.
She writes the column “I Brake for Moms” for the Sunday edition of The Everett Daily Herald and blogs at Teaching My Baby to Read. Jennifer is a graduate of Stanford University and lives with her husband and two children in Edmonds, WA.
