Friends of the Library May Event

May 2, 2018

Friends of the Bennington Library

is proud to host

Young Adult Author

Tonya Kuper

Tuesday, May 22nd 2018

7:00 PM

Ridgewood Active Retirement Community

12301 N 149th Circle, Bennington NE

(Location change due to community room renovation)

Tonya Kuper writes young adult science fiction and contemporary novels. She first fell in love with reading in elementary school, which eventually lead to earning a BA in Elementary Education and a MS in Reading Education, but she never thought she’d write a novel, let alone several. When Tonya isn’t writing, she teaches Young Adult Literature Writing Workshop at the University of Nebraska at Omaha, laughs as much as possible, loves music, and nerds-out over Star Wars, Sherlock, and all things pop-culture. She lives in Omaha, NE with her husband and two rad boys.  Come join us as Tonya discusses her novels, “Enigma” and “Anomaly”.

This presentation is free and open to the public.
