Banned Books Week: September 23-29. This yearly event is sponsored by the American Library Association along with a coalition of other organizations. They’re dedicated to celebrating the right to read and increasing awareness about book censorship. They’re tweeting at #BannedBookWeek and encouraging all who love the freedom to read to use this week to speak out against censorship. You can visit their website here.

Heather Murphy Capps
Heather Murphy Capps has always had a deep appreciation for comfort and elegance. She and Claudia would have run out of money quickly together but would absolutely have been on the same page about taxis and nice restaurants. And of course, solving mysteries about beautiful art. That said, Heather also appreciates Jamie’s love of complication, which is why she spent several years living in rural Kenya and then became a television news reporter, which involved standing for hours in the middle of hurricanes and political battles. Now she’s raising middle grade readers and writing for them. She loves to read and write books with lots of great science, magic, mystery, and adventure. Heather is an #ownvoices author and committed to creating more diversity in publishing.
