Carolyn Turgeon presents 'The Next Full Moon'

2012-03-08 by

Carolyn Turgeon (a professor for UAA’s MFA low residency program) is the author of three novels: “Rain Village,” “Godmother: The Secret Cinderella Story” and “Mermaid”—a retelling of the original little mermaid story.

“The Next Full Moon,” her first children’s book, was just published. It is a middle-grade novel about a 12-year-old girl who discovers that her mother was a swan maiden.

“Carolyn Turgeon has a gift for imagining magical worlds. In Ava’s case, this other-worldly place belongs to the Swan Maidens, one of whom is Ava’s mother. Ava goes back and forth between middle school and this magical realm taking the reader along for an exhilarating, extraordinary ride.”
