Meet YA Author and Literary Agent Lindsay Ribar
Join us for a fantastic opportunity for some insight into the publishing industry. We are thrilled to have published YA author and literary agent Lindsay Ribar here at the Library to talk about what it is like to be a young writer and share her experience working in the publishing industry. This event will be held in the Curtis Gallery on Monday, May 19 at 7:00PM.
Her first novel, The Art of Wishing, was published by the Penguin Group in 2013 and the sequel is due out in July. She has been working in the publishing industry for just over seven years, as both a literary agency assistant and as a junior agent. As such, she has a unique, insider's perspective on what it is like to try to get published, as well as what it is like to work in the field.
Lindsay Ribar grew up in New Jersey, where the only logical thing to do after high school was to move to New York. She majored in drama and English literature at NYU, and now works in book publishing, where she reads other people’s novels by day and writes her own by night. She owns approximately twelve bazillion CD’s, attends far too many concerts, and mainlines nerdy television shows like it’s going out of style. She is fond of Ireland, musicals, long walks around Manhattan, and the color blue.
