Jerry Spinelli, Princeton Library
(Mon. January 23 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm): The award-winning author
discusses his new book, “The Warden’s Daughter,” about a motherless
13-year-old girl growing up in an apartment above the entrance of a
prison where her father is the warden. The New York Times has called
Spinelli “a poet of the prepubescent. . . . No writer guides his young
characters, and his readers, past these pitfalls and challenges and
toward their futures with more compassion.” Jerry Spinelli is the author
of many books for young readers, including Stargirl; Love, Stargirl;
Milkweed; Crash; Hokey Pokey; Wringer; and Maniac Magee, winner of the
Newbery Medal; along with Knots in My Yo-yo String, his autobiography.
