Join New York Times bestselling author and Ohio native, Margaret Peterson Haddix, for an afternoon on the Thurber House lawn. Haddix’s remarkably diverse output of books for children and young adults has made a bestseller of every new book she writes. She is the author of many critically and popularly acclaimed YA and middle grade novels, including the Children of Exile series, The Missing series, the Under Their Skin series, and the Shadow Children series. Haddix’s ability to create worlds of another time that resonate with the young people of today make her a unique writer who both entertains and enlightens her readers. She lives with her family in Columbus, Ohio.

This event will conclude with a book signing.
