Author Robin Stevenson

The Reading Bug is thrilled to present, Robin Stevenson...the author of over 20 books for kids and teens.  This book may be her most inspiring and important one yet for young readers and we hope you'll take the opportunity to purchase one for your child!

During the presentation, Robin will share photos of herself as a kid, with quotes from activists.  She will emphasize will be the importance of activism being grounded in hope- in the belief that change is possible and worth fighting for, and the idea that there are many different ways to be an activist. She will talk about her writing process, share some stories from the book, discuss how writing itself can be a form of activism, and encourage kids to think about what issues they care about and how they might use their own voices to take action on those issues.
