Teens residing in Montgomery County are invited to show their creativity in a fan art contest celebrating our upcoming visit from YA superstar author Maggie Stiefvater (The Scorpio Races, The Shiver Trilogy, and The Raven Cycle).
Entries will be accepted October 1-October 31, 2016 via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or in person at each branch location. Winners will be announced and prizes awarded before About the Book with Maggie Stiefvater. Because the contest is in celebration of Ms Stiefvater's visit, entries should incorporate a subject from her work. We suggest ravens, wolves, tarot art, cool cars, magical forests, or character art but will accept any connected art. Entries will be accepted in the following categories:
