Meeting Author A.S. King

posted Oct 14, 2013, 7:21 PM by
Mrs. Cassinelli recently attended the Oregon Association of School Libraries conference and met Young Adult author A.S. King.  The La Salle Library has three of King's books and is looking forward to her newest title "Reality Boy" that is coming out later this month.  King often writes about teens struggling with real-life issues and coming to terms with hard decisions each person must make.  I highly recommend her books!
