Seeking something to hook your middle grade readers? Look no further than SLJ’s free, one-hour webcast on the latest and greatest titles coming out this fall. Join moderator Marybeth Kozikowski, of the Sachem Public Library in Holbrook, NY, for a sneak peek at intriguing new books from Boyds Mills Press, Penguin Young Readers, and Shadow Mountain Publishing.

You’ll hear about many enthralling offerings that tackle a variety of subjects and formats: Nikki Grimes’s latest, Garvey’s Choice, a novel in verse about a lonely misfit who finds his voice when he joins the school chorus; Ruth Behar’s Lucky Broken Girl, the moving tale of a young Cuban Jewish immigrant girl recovering from a devastating car accident; and Loki Mulholland’s She Stood for Freedom, the biography of a teenager who braved obstacles that included jail time to take part in the civil rights movement.
