Book Signing with Kim Oclon

April 25 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

With a bachelor’s degree in screenwriting and MFA in Fiction, Kim Oclon taught high school for seven years. She taught creative writing, film, and co-founded the school’s first gay-straight alliance.

Kim has been a reader all her life, starting with a series of Care Bear Books and “Grover’s Book of Resting Places.” Eventually, she graduated on to “Sweet Valley Twins” and “The Babysitters Club.”
In junior high, she discovered Lurlene McDaniel and her One Last Wish books.

“I always knew I wanted to be a writer but it wasn’t until high school when I read “The Things They Carried” did I think to myself, THIS is good writing.”
