Shaunda Kennedy Wenger, an author of 9 books, will be presenting,
“Options for Publishing in Today’s Market,” at the Meredith Public Library
on July 17 at 6:30 pm. The summer of 2012 marks her 10th year
in navigating the publishing industry. Her experiences have led her
through contracts with NY and foreign publishers, agents, small publishers,
local and national magazines, and now, her latest adventure:
self-publishing. Her first book, The Book Lover's Cookbook, Celebrated
Works of Literature and the Passages That Feature Them
(Ballantine Books @ Random House) was featured as a National Public
Radio holiday gift pick in 2003. She has five titles published for the
educational market by Benchmark Education Company and Richard
C. Owen Publishers. These books include Caterpillar Can't Wait,
Watch a Butterfly Grow, How Many Muffins, Farm Stand Mystery, and
In Black Bear Country. In 2010, she released two books through her
own Essemkay Company Productions. The Ghost in Me is a paranormal
novel for middle-grade teens and has received note-worthy praise,
such as that from award-winning children’s author Rick Walton who
described it as “a fun, exciting read.” Her second book, Little Red Riding
Hood, Into the Forest Again, won the 2011 KART Kids Book List
award for young readers. Reality Bites, Tales of a Half-Vampire is her
newest paranormal book for tweens. She is looking forward to spending
an evening with writers and readers—young and old—who love
creating and enjoying stories. All of her books will be available for purchase,
with a portion of the sales donated back to the library. Visit her
website for more information about her books
