Author Brandy Colbert to discuss ‘The Voting Booth’ on Tuesday, Oct. 27, from 6-7 p.m. via Zoom

With six Forsyth County Public Library branches being used as early voting sites, FCPL has scheduled author Brandy Colbert for a Zoom discussion of her teen novel, “The Voting Booth.” The session will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 27 from 6-7 p.m.

Colbert wraps a teenage love story around the theme of voting rights in this modern tale of teens trying to change the world and make sure their vote counts.

Marva Sheridan is excited about voting in her first presidential election and has spent months registering people to vote. Duke Crenshaw just wants to get voting over with so he can move on with his life. The problem is, he’s turned away from the polls.

Colbert is the author of several books for children and teens, including “The Only Black Girl in Town, “The Revolution of Birdie Randolph” and “Little & Lion,” which won the Stonewall Book Award.

She is on the faculty of Hamline University’s MFA program in writing for children and lives in Los Angeles.
