Virtual Author Event: Nafiza Azad

YA author Nafiza Azad will be joining us for a virtual author visit on December 6th!

Nafiza Azad is a self-identified island girl. She has hurricanes in her blood and dreams of a time she can exist solely on mangoes and pineapple. Her debut YA fantasy was the Morris Award–nominated The Candle and the Flame. Her other books include The Wild Ones and the shiny new Road of the Lost.

Nafiza will be speaking with the library and Chinook High School via Zoom at noon.  If you'd like an invitation to the session, email our teenbrarian at  If you can't make it to the live presentation, watch for a recording on our YouTube channel!

This event is presented with the support of the Alberta Foundation for the Arts.

Together, they talk about teen programs and collections, and how to make the library better for youth. Volunteering with TAG is a great way to build leadership skills and contribute to the community.
