Please join young adult author Elana K. Arnold for the launch of her latest novel, What Girls Are Made Of. Elana will be joined in conversation by author Brandy Colbert (Pointe, 2014; Little and Lion, 2017)

When Nina Faye was fourteen, her mother told her there was no such thing as unconditional love. Nina believed her. Now she’ll do anything for the boy she loves, to prove she’s worthy of him. But when he breaks up with her, Nina is lost. What is she if not a girlfriend? What is she made of? Broken-hearted, Nina tries to figure out what the conditions of love are.

Let us know you’re coming.
