Hamilton library hosts Kerry O’Malley Cerra
HAMILTON — Author Kerry O’Malley Cerra will be at Hamilton Public Library for a teen writing workshop at 5 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 26, sponsored by the Colgate Bookstore.
The workshop will teach teens on the best way to create a perfect character. The event is free and open both teenagers and adults. Her book, “Just a Drop of Water,” will be available for purchase and signing at the event.
“Just a Drop of Water,” a gripping and intensely touching debut middle grade novel, brings the events of Sept. 11, which shook the world, into the lens of a young boy who is desperately trying to understand the ramifications of this life-altering event.
“Just a Drop of Water” won a Florida Book Award, the Crystal Kite Award, and was named to VOYAs Top Shelf Fiction for Middle Readers’ 2014 list. In addition, the book was a finalist for the 2015-16 Maine Student Book Award, the 2016-17 Truman Award (Missouri), the 2017-18 Garden State Teen Book Award (New Jersey), the 2018 Nene Award (Hawaii), and won runner-up for the 2016-17 Magnolia Award (Mississippi).
She holds a degree in Social Science Education from the University of South Florida and continues to use her teaching skills in author presentations at schools across the country. Though she’ll always consider South Jersey/Philly her home, she currently lives in Florida with her husband, kids, and two poorly behaved rescue dogs.
