LRU Visiting Writers Series - Sarah Pennypacker


Every year, the LRU Visiting Writers Series invites authors to tell the stories behind their own works in a relaxed environment before university and community audiences. We invite you to come listen to Eboo Pate and Sara Pennypacker.

Sara is the author of more than 20 children’s books, including The New York Times bestselling Pax, the Waylon series, the Clementine series; Summer of the Gypsy MothsPierre in Love; Sparrow Girl; and The Amazing World of Stuart. She has also contributed four books to the venerable Flat Stanley series. Her books have won numerous awards, including a Golden Kite Award and a Christopher’s Medal, many children’s choice state awards, and have appeared on many Best Books lists. She enjoys speaking about writing children’s books at elementary schools, conferences, and college programs.  

The event will be held in the P.E. Monroe Auditorium on LRU campus.  The event is free and open to the public. Tickets may be obtained by calling 828.328.7206 or going to the box office in PE Monroe Auditorium.
