Vanilla Book Party
October 10, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Please join us for the launch of Vanilla, the YA fiction debut of poet Billy Merrell. A novel-in-poems, Vanilla tells the story of two boys who have been in love for a long time, but who must also face the truth that they want different things from life and from each other. A book-signing and reception will follow the event.
Advance Praise for Vanilla:
“A deeply personal and poetic dissection of young love and identity. Merrell has crafted a total knockout.” — John Corey Whaley, National Book Award finalist and winner of the Printz Medal
“It’s a story not just for LGBTQIA+ readers, but for anyone who’s ever navigated the confusions, complications, and commemorations of a relationship. With Vanilla, Billy Merrell makes a remarkable fiction debut.” — David Levithan, winner of the Margaret A. Edwards Award
