24. Masterclass with Sarah Suk

Vancouver-based author Sarah Suk is known for her gripping, atmospheric YA novels. Her latest work, The Space between Here & Now, follows a teen with a mysterious condition that transports her to the past when she smells certain scents linked to specific memories. It’s an aching, powerful exploration of memory, grief, and the painful silences we must overcome to discover our truest selves. Sarah will share her writing insights with students in this informative, engaging masterclass. How can fictional stories divulge important information about our real lives? How do authors come up with multiple book ideas? Can editing ever be fun? Sarah answers all. Grades 8–12.
