Literary Partners Program: Book Launch for Billy Merrell's Vanilla

Date and Time: 
October 10, 2017 - 6:00PM to 8:00PM
Event Location: 
Elizabeth Kray Hall

Please join us for the launch of Vanilla, the YA fiction debut of poet Billy Merrell. A novel-in-poems, Vanilla tells the story of two boys who have been in love for a long time, but who must also face the truth that they want different things from life and from each other. A book-signing and reception will follow the event.

ADVANCED PRAISE FOR VANILLA:

“A feast for those hungry for character-driven literary fiction." —Michael Cart, Booklist, starred review

“A deeply personal and poetic dissection of young love and identity. Merrell has crafted a total knockout.”
— John Corey Whaley, National Book Award finalist and winner of the Printz Medal

“It’s a story not just for LGBTQIA+ readers, but for anyone who’s ever navigated the confusions, complications, and commemorations of a relationship. With Vanilla, Billy Merrell makes a remarkable fiction debut.”
— David Levithan, winner of the Margaret A. Edwards Award
