Mysteries to Moon Pies: Children’s and Teen Books from Inspiration to Publication with author Candice Marley Conner

May 10, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Join children’s and teen author Candice Marley Conner at the Conde-Charlotte Museum Wednesday, May 10th at 5:00 p.m. as she discusses her writing process and the inspiration behind her stories.
Growing up between swamps, a river, and the Gulf Coast, Candice Marley Conner’s stories come from gnarled cypress knees, muddy water, and salty air. She is the kidlit haint at the Haunted Book Shop, a Local Liaison for the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators, and an officer for the Mobile Writers Guild. Her short stories and poems are in various anthologies and magazines including Woolgathering, Smarty Pants Magazine for Kids, Highlights Hello, Cabinet of Curiosities, Under the Full Moon’s Light, Babybug, Chicken Soup for the Soul, and more. She is the author of the picture books, M IS FOR MOON PIE: ABCs IN THE BIRTHPLACE OF MARDI GRAS, CHOMPSEY CHOMPS BOOKS, and SASSAFRAS AND HER TEENY TINY TAIL, as well as the YA Southern mystery, THE EXISTENCE OF BEA PEARL. She lives in Mobile with her husband and two children (one of whom is possibly feral, and definitely a velociraptor).
