Congrats to Jarrett J. Krosoczka, who’s powerful graphic memoir Hey, Kiddo has just been named a finalist for the YALSA Award for Excellence in Nonfiction for Young Adults!

“A raw graphic memoir, author-illustrator Jarrett J. Krosoczka depicts his complex upbringing – including a search for his father, difficult interactions with his heroin-addicted mother, and day-to-day life with his grandparents. Illustrations–ample in gray, burnt orange, and earth tones–conjure the feeling of vague memories.

We’re working on Jarrett’s Fall 2019 Speaking schedule now (filling quickly), so if you’re interested in hosting him for an event, get in touch with us right away!
