Author to give students 200 copies of her book

Giveaway at Sunday, March 6 Kepler's event

Lauren "Bird" Horowitz says a lot of the reason she is back home with her new young adult novel "Shattered Blue" is so she can give back to the community where she grew up.

She plans to give 200 copies of the book away to the first 200 middle and high school students who show up for her reading at Kepler's Books on Sunday, March 6, at 2 p.m.

She will also visit Woodside High School, Selby Lane School, Los Altos High School, and Menlo School, her alma mater, to talk about reading and writing.

In addition, her book was chosen by Save the Children as a "Young Ambassador Book," which the charity distributed not only to underserved communities in the U.S. but in Tanzania, China, England, New Zealand, Australia and Bangladesh.

"I'm getting to be a listener and a teacher" because of the book, she says. "That's the part that was such a shock to me. All I did was write a book and put some poems in it."

On her LaurenBirdHorowitz.com website, an interactive map shows pictures of the book being read around the world.
