Two Authors, a Conversation
and a Pizza Party

with Jen Lancaster and Will Kostakis

Tuesday, October 24 at 6:30 p.m.
at The River Room (1218 13th Ave, Grafton)


W.J. Niederkorn Library, Cedarburg Public Library, USS Liberty Memorial Public Library, and Boswell Book Company have come together to bring you two amazing writers for a YA pizza party event! This event is free.

The Gatekeepers sheds light on a little known problem in a beautiful area. North Shore, IL, looks picture perfect but no one talks about the fact that the brilliant, talented kids in this town have a terrible history of throwing themselves in front of commuter trains, and that there’s rampant opioid abuse that often leads to heroin usage.
Three students, each with their own struggles and issues, are shocked when a lovable football player takes his own life and the tragedy becomes a suicide cluster. With so many students facing their own demons, can they find a way to save each other—as well as themselves?
About the Author: New York Times bestselling author Jen Lancaster has sold well over a million books.

In The Sidekicks, three boys are left to face the death of their best friend, Isaac. None of the boys know each other, but their relationship to Isaac starts to bring them all closer together as they struggle to deal with their grief.
About the Author: Will Kostakis lives in Sydney where he writes books for teens and the adults who like to read about them. In his native Australia, he’s a critically-acclaimed and award-winning author.
