Author Ellen Hopkins to discuss books and writing June 24 at CMU

Popular, award-winning author Ellen Hopkins, whose young-adult titles include “Crank,” “Burned,” and “Glass,” is scheduled to give a public presentation about books and writing at 6 p.m. Monday, June 24, in Room 112 of the Moss Performing Arts Center at Colorado Mesa University. A book-signing will follow.
The presentation is open to the public at no charge.
Hopkins, who is visiting Grand Junction as a guest of Mesa County Libraries, is a poet, freelance writer, and the author of 20 nonfiction titles and five New York Times Bestselling novels-in-verse. She has published hundreds of articles on subjects ranging from aviation to child abuse to winegrowing. Hopkins mentors other writers through her position as a regional adviser for the Nevada chapter of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. She is a regular speaker at schools, book festivals, and writers’ conferences throughout the United States.
Hopkins’ visit to Mesa County was partly funded through a YALSA (Young Adult Library Services Association) and Dollar General Literacy Foundation grant.
