Meet Jennifer L. Holm!

Friday, June 5, 2015 - 6:00pm

The Reading Bug presents beloved children's author Jenni Holm! She is a New York Times-bestseller and three-time Newbery Honor winner.  Holm's works are brilliantly quirky and thought-provoking inspired by childhood memories and family history. For example, a diary that was kept by her great aunt inspired her first novel, Our Only May Amelia. Comic books were another source of inspiration. The only girl in a family of five, Holm recalls fighting with her brothers over who got to read the Sunday comic section first. Teaming up with graphic artist and brother Matt Holm, Jennifer has created a delightful collection of graphic novels including the Babymouse and Squish series’.
