Throw It Back with Penguin’s #TBT Webinar

Event Date & Time: Thursday, May 10, 2018, 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM ET / 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM PT

Penguin is throwing it back! Join Penguin Young Readers for a time-traveling webinar focused on historical fiction and nonfiction that will be on shelves in Spring & Summer 2018. Ranging from nonfiction about Ancient Rome and the Vietnam War, to fiction covering Medieval Scotland through the 1990s, this free, hour-long discussion will give you recommendations and book-talking points for historical fiction fans of all ages.

This webinar will also feature a conversation between Luann Toth and author Elizabeth Partridge. Partridge is the National Book Award Finalist, Printz Honor Recipient, and author of the recent nonfiction title Boots on the Ground, exploring the Vietnam War era through the personal stories of eight people involved in the tumultuous war.
