Thanks to the Writers’ Union of Canada for sponsoring my talk today at the VPL South Hill Library on Fraser Street. I will be talking to a grade 12 law class from John Oliver High School about myself, my writing and a couple of my books, including The Darkness Between the Stars and The Perfect Cut.
This is a great opportunity to talk to students about my life as a writer and to give them some personal insight into what drives me to write about teens and for teens. In this changing literary landscape, these chances to speak directly to kids are fewer and farther between so I am grateful to the Writers’ Union for this afternoon’s face-to-face with my readers. It will be fun 🙂
About Perfect Cut: Seeing lots of great reviews like this one:
The detail and depth Julie Burtinshaw went into to describe this young mans life was iunbelievably well done. I started this book, and neglect life until I was finished. From the very beginning I was drawn in to the story, as I have an interest in adolescent psychology, and I was not disappointed. For anyone looking for a great book that is about more than just first kisses or friend problems, I recommend this to you. Words cannot describe how much I LOVED this book. Thank you.
