These writers know what it’s like to be a New York City kid. Caroline Gertler’s The Many Points of Me and Where You’ve Got to Be and Melissa Dassori’s J.R. Silver Writes Her World feature unforgettable middle school characters navigating the challenges of friendship, family, change, and choice. In this interactive event, the authors discuss how the city inspired their novels and prompt participants to share their own New York stories.
