Provo City Library at Academy Square: Provo Library welcomes Shannon Hale, Leuyen Pham, and Raina Telgemeier to share their new graphic novels.

Princess Academy is a Newbery Honor Book and New York Times best seller. Austenland, her first book for adults, is a Book Sense pick. She and her husband are co-writing a series of graphic novels for kids. LeUyen Pham is the award-winning and critically acclaimed illustrator of more than sixty books for children.

She is also the co-creator, along with Shannon Hale, of the groundbreaking graphic memoir Real Friends. Born in Vietnam, LeUyen and her family fled the country on the second-to-last transport out of Saigon in the final days of the Vietnam War.
