"Worst-Case Collin" Book Event with Rebecca Caprara @ Greenfield Public Library

Join the Greenfield Public Library for this Mass Kids Lit Fest event with Rebecca Caprara, author of Worst-Case Collin, which was a Bank Street College Best Children’s Book of the Year! This poignant middle grade novel in verse follows twelve-year-old Collin who manages his anxiety by mapping out survival plans for any disaster or worst-case scenario. Ever since he lost his mom in a car accident, he’s been journaling about how to overcome things like avalanches, riptides, or even a bad case of halitosis. Can Collin learn to be vulnerable around those he loves, even when he can’t control every possible scenario? Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a journal decorating and writing workshop. Books will be available for purchase and signing following the event. www.makidslitfest.org Rebecca Caprara graduated from Cornell University and practiced architecture before shifting her focus from bricks to books. She is the author of several acclaimed novels for children and young adults, including Worst-Case Collin, and Spin, which was a 2023 Kirkus Best Young Adult Book of the Year. In addition to writing, she runs a community book club for young readers at an independent bookstore in Massachusetts, and presents hands-on literacy workshops for schools and libraries.
