New Editor’s Letter at Girls in Capes!

February means romance, which (if you’re involved in a fandom) totally means OTP.

I’m pretty proud of creating an entire issue around shipping.

Tonight’s talk on Strong Female Characters at Bedford Library

I’m rolling through Michigan tonight!  You can visit Bedford Library at 6 p.m. for a talk on Strong Female Characters in books for teens.  Here’s the official description from the Monroe County Library System’s website:

Ever notice that readers who talk about “strong female characters” only seem interested in girls who use physical strength? There are plenty of ways for girls (and boys) to be strong without using their fists – and THE SCHOOL FOR GOOD AND EVIL’s Agatha, BORN WICKED’s Cate, and FANGIRL’s Cath are all strong female characters who become strong in a totally different way. Come see this special presentation by girlsincapes.com founder and editor, Feliza Casano. There will be pizza!

The presentation is expected to run for about 30, and I’ll also have a few things to give away.  This is open for all ages, but I would recommend the talk for ages 14 to 18.

If you’re a student at Toledo Early College High School, check out the description on the TECHS Cultural Events blog.
