Meet the Author: E.K. Johnston with Natalie C. Parker

Carmack Community Room

Bring your lunch and meet E.K. Johnston, Canadian author and forensic archaeologist. Her books range from contemporary fantasy (The Story of Owen, Prairie Fire), to fairy tale re-imaginings (A Thousand Nights, Spindle), small town Ontario (Exit, Pursued By A Bear) to a galaxy far, far away (Star Wars: Ahsoka). Rest assured, E.K. Johnston understands sometimes things turn out weird and there's not a lot you can do about it, but she has no plans to rein anything in. Purchase her books through the Friends of Johnson County Library Central Resource Bookstore. 

Johnston will be interviewed by young adult author and entrepreneur, Natalie C. Parker. Author of the critically praised Beware the Wild duology, Parker is the founder of Madcap Retreats, offering workshops and retreats for aspiring and established writers. Parker is the editor of Three Sides of a Heart, a collection of short stories for young adults exploring the love triangle coming out this December.
