Event Details

To celebrate this year’s National Library Week theme “There’s More to the Story,” Peoria Public Library will host a visit from Peoria native and novelist James Klise. The author of award-winning novels for young adults, Klise’s a new historical novel, I’ll Take Everything You Have (Algonquin Young Readers), tells a queer coming-of-age crime story that Publishers Weekly calls “a mesmerizing snapshot of 1930s Chicago.” Klise will read briefly from the book, then join local author-librarian Joel Shoemaker on stage for a conversation about writing, research, book challenges, and more. An audience Q&A will follow, and books will be available for sale and signing.
