NINA LACOUR – HOLD STILL
Nina visited us last year and was a huge student favorite. She’s a local writer and English teacher whose first book completely overwhelmed me. See my review HERE. Here’s a LINK to the entry about her visit to BHS. I strongly encourage you to hear her talk and read from her amazing book.
We own four copies of Hold Still; please come by to check out the great book even if you don’t have time to see Nina in Oakland!
ATTENTION YOUNG ADULTS
Come meet Oakland author Nina LaCour, on Wednesday November 3rd at 7:00 p.m as she reads from her Young Adult book HOLD STILL.
After losing her best friend, Ingrid, to suicide, Caitlin is completely immobilized. Unable to function, and refusing to visit a therapist, she begins the long journey to wellness alone. During this year of heart-wrenching, raw emotion, Caitlin finds Ingrid’s journal, which not only reveals her descent into irreversible depression, but also serves as Caitlin’s vehicle for renewed hope in the future. The book is written with honesty, revealing one’s pain after the loss of a loved one. Caitlin learns, with the help of new friends and her parents, that there is life after Ingrid.
