RHINEBECK, N.Y. -- Authors Goldy Moldavsky, Rebecca Podos and Gavriel Savit will debut their young adult books of the Hudson Valley YA Society Sunday, March 6 at Oblong Books, Rhinebeck, N.Y.
From new author Goldy Moldavsky comes a pitch-black, hilarious take on fandom and the badass girls who have the power to make-or break-the people we call "celebrities," "Kill the Boy Band."
It is Heathers meets One Direction. Goldy writes young adult fiction from her hometown of Brooklyn. She studied journalism in college, where she got to interview some celebrities for her school paper. After a bit she realized it’d be more fun making up stories about celebrities, so that’s what she does in her writing. Some of her influences include "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," works of John Irving, and the Mexican telenovelas she grew up watching with her mother.
Rebecca Podos' debut book is "The Mystery of Hollow Places," an original novel of love, loss, and identity.
All Imogene Scott knows of her mother is the bedtime story her father told her as a child. It’s the story of how her parents met: he, a forensic pathologist; she, a mysterious woman who came to identify a body. A woman who left Imogene and her father when she was a baby, a woman who was always possessed of a powerful loneliness, a woman who many referred to as “troubled waters.” Podos is a graduate of the writing, literature, and publishing program at Emerson College, where she won the MFA award for best thesis. Her fiction has been published in Glimmer Train, Glyph, Paper Darts, Bellows American Review, and SmokeLong Quarterly.
Gavriel Savit’s debut, "Anna and the Swallow Man," reveals life’s hardest lessons while celebrating its miraculous possibilities.
"The Swallow Man" is not Anna’s father. She knows that very well but she also knows that, like her father, he’s in danger of being taken, and like her father, he has a gift for languages, Polish, Russian, German, Yiddish, even "Bird." When he summons a bright, beautiful swallow down to his hand to stop her from crying, Anna is entranced. She follows him into the wilderness.
