Author behind Zoe Washington young reader series visiting Topeka
TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Even if you don’t know her work, your kids might be fans!
Park said Marks is behind the Zoe Washington series of books, targeted toward middle-school age readers. The initial story, From the Desk of Zoe Washington, shares how Zoe receives a letter from her father, who is incarcerated, and works to prove his innocence. Park said Marks does a great job balancing the serious themes of her stories, with lighter-hearted threads, such as Zoe’s talents for baking.
Janae Marks will speak at TSCPL from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Oct. 2. She’ll also sign books during her appearance.
Marks will include visits to two Topeka elementary schools while she’s in town, encouraging young people to read.
