Second Story

Volunteer curated by children’s authors Swati Avasthi and Heather Bouwman, Second Story is the Loft’s reading series for young adult, middle-grade, and picture book authors. Perfect for families and readers of all ages, Second Story pairs a first-time author with a more established voice in children’s literature. Typically, 4-6 readings are presented a year, usually on weekend afternoons.
