Fullerton, CA – Fullerton Public Library will host a book launch party for local author Carol Snow celebrating her new book BUBBLE WORLD.  The 12 year resident of Fullerton will welcome guests to the Fullerton Public Library on Sunday, August 18, 2013, from 2:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

BUBBLE WORLD, from Henry Holt Books for Young Readers, will be released on July 30, 2013 and is recommended for readers aged 12-17.  Snow reports that some of the most enthusiastic fans of her young adult fiction are well past their teen years. Books will be available on the day of the event at the Library and Snow will be available to sign books. 

Library Director Maureen Gebelein states "We always love hosting local authors and Carol Snow is one of our favorites…our patrons love her books and her engaging style".

Early critical response has been enthusiastic. To date, Snow has written five books for adults and three for teens. Her first young adult novel, SWITCH, was chosen by the American Library Association as a Quick Pick for Reluctant Readers and as a Scholastic Summer Challenge read. Her books have been translated into German, Norwegian, and Polish. Originally from New Jersey, Snow holds a B.A. in psychology from Brown University and an M.A.T. in secondary school English from Boston College. 

Snow states that she is always excited when she has a new book coming out. “I am going to have to put in my contact lenses, comb my hair & leave my house. I'm fine with that though my cat is getting anxious.”

The Fullerton Public Library is located at 353 W. Commonwealth Ave. next to Fullerton City Hall. For more information, please contact the Library at (714) 738-6583.
