Local Author to Speak at all MRL Branches
Local science fiction and young adult writer Jodi Meadows is obsessed with fantasy. She sprinkles it in her young adult books for readers to enjoy, and her fantastical methods are making her a popular young author. Her two published novels, Asunder and Incarnate, blend utopian and dystopian elements together with romance, fantasy, and science fiction. Meadows explores the themes of immortality and reincarnation which often fascinate youth today. She includes dragons and other magical creatures for added effect.
“Overall, my goal was to build a new and (hopefully) interesting world with elements I find fascinating,” says Meadows in describing the plots of her books in The Book Smugglers February eNewsletter.
Jodi Meadows will visit all seven branches of Massanutten Regional Library and speak about her style of writing and published books. A relatively new writer, Meadows lives in the Shenandoah Valley and will soon release her third novel, Infinite.
Meadows will begin her MRL tour at Elkton Community Library Friday, June 14, 1 pm, and continue to Page Public Library on Monday, June 17, 2 pm.
The young author will journey to Broadway’s Village Library on Tuesday, June 18, 2 pm, and North River Library in Bridgewater on Wednesday, June 19, 5:30 pm.
Meadows will speak to Shenandoah Community Library teens on Thursday, June 20, 2 pm, and discuss fantasy writing at MRL Main Library on Saturday, June 22, 2 pm, and finalize her speaking engagements at Grottoes Branch Library on Tuesday, June 25, 4 pm.
This program is free and geared toward teens, but all are welcome to enjoy these fun events.
