Teen Read Week: Author Brian Katcher
Columbia Public Library, Children's Program Room

Come meet Brian Katcher, author of the award-winning young adult books "Almost Perfect" and "Playing With Matches." Hear about his writing process and his new book, “The Improbable Theory of Ana and Zak,” a hilarious he said/she said romance about two teens recovering from heartbreak and discovering themselves on an out-of-this-world accidental first date at a science fiction convention. When he’s not writing, Brian works as a school librarian. He lives in central Missouri with his wife and daughter. Books will be for sale from Barnes & Noble before and after the program and Brian will do a book-signing session. Teens, adults welcome.
