Insider's Look at Young Adult Fiction: Writing, Publishing and the YA Author's Life
Arcadia University, Friday, November 18, 2011 at 7pm
Marie Lamba reads from Over My Head.
How are the changes in publishing affecting writers? What should every writer be doing to be successful in the future? And what are some of the special challenges facing young adult authors right now? Find out when young adult author Marie Lamba gives “An Insider’s Look at Young Adult Fiction: Writing, Publishing and the YA Author’s Life,” on Friday, Nov. 18th from 7-9 p.m. in the Castle Rose Room at Arcadia University in Glenside, PA. Lamba’s talk is hosted by Arcadia University’s Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing program and is part of the Philadelphia Writers Conference’s Free Forums. The event is free and open to the public. During her presentation, Lamba will discuss writing challenges, market forces and what it’s like to be a Young Adult author today, from creation through connecting with readers. She will also offer insights she has from her role as both an author and as an acquiring literary agent. A question-and-answer session follows her talk, along with a book signing. Marie Lamba (marielamba.com) is author of the young adult novel WHAT I MEANT…, which Publisher’s Weekly dubbed “an impressive debut,” and of the new YA novel OVER MY HEAD, which New York Times bestseller Jonathan Maberry describes as “funny, touching, and at times heart-breaking.” Her work also appears in the anthologies LIAR LIAR and CALL ME OKAASAN: Adventures in Multicultural Mothering, and her articles have been published in many national magazines including Garden Design and Writer’s Digest. In addition to her writing, Lamba is also an Assistant Agent for the Jennifer DeChiara Literary Agency in New York City.

Writers' Bash: Benefit Party for Author L.A. Banks
Smokey Joe's, Saturday, August 6, 2011 at 7pm
Jonathan Maberry; Marie Lamba; Merry Jones; Gregory Frost; Solomon Jones; Keith DeCandido; Dennis Tafoya
Come network, rub elbows with a slew of authors and editors, and, above all, have a night of fun for a good cause. It’s all part of a special Writers’ Bash on Saturday, August 6th, beginning at 7 p.m. and going on till closing at Smokey Joe’s bar located at 208 S. 40th Street in University City on the University of Pennsylvania campus. At the bash, enjoy music and munchies, discounted drinks, and chances to bid on amazing silent auction items including full manuscript critiques by top New York literary agents and editors! Admission to the event, which is sponsored by the Liars Club, is $20, $10 for college students with I.D. All proceeds go toward the expenses of ill author, Liars Club member and wonderful friend Leslie Esdaile Banks (who writes under the name L.A. Banks). Leslie is battling a rare cancer. At the Writers’ Bash on August 6th, in addition to $2 beers and $3 wines, there will be a special drink for the adventurous called “The Vamp,” dedicated to Leslie and her popular Vampire Huntress novels. And throughout the night, try your luck in a 50/50, and with inexpensive basket raffles. And don’t forget that impressive silent auction. “The silent auction is going to be really exciting,” predicts Random House author and Liar Marie Lamba. Items include tickets and a backstage tour for Jersey Boys on Broadway; full scholarships to writer’s conferences; signed books by New York Times bestselling authors such as Charlain Harris, Heather Graham and Sherrilyn Kenyon; and the coveted manuscript critiques offered by a number of New York editors and literary agents. Lamba says, “How much would you pay to have your full manuscript read by a top literary agent? And then have that agent give you a full critique over the phone? For us writers, that’s simply priceless.” So far, we’ve got crits offered by editors from Pocket Books, St. Martins, and Ace/ROC. Literary agent crits hail from McIntosh & Otis, Harvey Klinger, Jennifer DeChiara Agency, the Bent Agency, and Folio. More great stuff keeps being added. To see the most up-to-date details of this event and the latest items added to the auction, click on the Writers’ Bash Details tab above, or click here. “Personally, I’m really looking forward to the Bash, and getting to know even more writers and editors from our area,” says New York Times bestseller Jonathan Maberry. Maberry, who is a founding member of the Liars Club, went to Conwell Middle School with Leslie in Philly. “Leslie is an exceptional treasure. A warm and talented woman.” Leslie (L.A. Banks), a New York Times and USA Today best-selling author, has written over 40 novels and 21 novellas. She was honored by the University of Pennsylvania Black Alumni Society as “A Living Legend,” and Mayor Nutter appointed her to the Philadelphia Free Library Board as a commissioner on the Mayor’s Commission on Literacy. In 2010, as a single mom and freelancer faced with a massive increase in her insurance bills, she fired off an eloquent email to the White House. President Barack Obama took notice, and Leslie had the distinct honor of introducing the President when he came to Philadelphia to talk about health care reform. Ironically, just a few months ago Leslie learned she had late stage adrenal cancer, and that her insurance is inadequate, leaving her family facing massive expenses. Leslie is a University City resident, and a Penn and Temple graduate. “She’s truly one of our own,” Maberry says, “and we hope everyone will come out in full force to Smokey Joes on the Penn campus to honor this amazing woman and help her family at this difficult time.” “This will definitely be a red-hot meetup,” says Lamba. “A chance to network with the creative community, and do some good, too. So join the Liars Club and come hoist a cold one for Leslie. It’ll be a blast. Honest!” (marielamba)
