Bestselling young adult author Sarah Dessen will discuss her works and career during a free program on Saturday, May 9 at 2:30 p.m. at the Glendale Branch, 6101 N. Keystone Avenue.

Dessen is the author of twelve novels, including Someone Like You, Just Listen, The Moon and More, and her latest, Saint Anything. Many of her works have been among the American Library Association’s “Best Fiction for Young Adults” selections, including her first novel in 1996, That Summer. Her 2009 book, Along for the Ride, earned a spot on the New York Times Bestsellers list. The 2003 film, How to Deal starring Mandy Moore, was based on both Someone Like You and That Summer. In 1999, Someone Like You was one of two winners of the School Library Best Book award, and the following year her book, Keeping the Moon, was the sole winner.

Dessen was born in 1970 in Evanston, Illinois, and graduated with highest honors in Creative Writing from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. She resides in North Carolina with her husband and daughter.
