Nina LaCour to Delve Inside Her New Modern Ghost Story via Instagram Live (9/17)
Nina LaCour, author of WATCH OVER ME (Dutton Books for Young Readers), will be in conversation with Stephanie Perkins at a virtual event hosted by Books & Books via Instagram Live on Thursday, September 17 at 6:00 pm (ET).
WATCH OVER ME is a modern ghost story about trauma and survival, chosen family and rebirth. Newly graduated from high school, Mila has aged out of the foster care system. So when she’s offered a teaching job and a place to live on an isolated part of the Northern California coast, she immediately accepts. Maybe she will finally find a new home—a real home. The farm is a refuge, but it’s also haunted by the past. And Mila’s own memories are starting to rise to the surface.
LaCour is also the author of the widely acclaimed Hold Still, The Disenchantments, Everything Leads to You, and the Michael L. Printz Award-winner We Are Okay. In addition she is the coauthor, with David Levithan, of You Know Me Well. Formerly a bookseller and high school English teacher, she now writes and parents full time. A San Francisco Bay Area native, Nina lives with her family in San Francisco, California.
