BTBC - I, Claudia by Mary McCoy

Thursday, September 19, 2019

Beyond the Book Club will discuss I, Claudia. This 2019 Michael L. Printz Honor Book is about a disaffected teen historian Claudia McCarthy never expected to be in charge of Imperial Day Academy, but by accident, design, or scheme, she is pulled into the tumultuous and high-profile world of the Senate and Honor Council. Suddenly, Claudia is wielding power over her fellow students that she never expected to have and isn't sure she wants. Mary McCoy is a writer and a librarian at the Los Angeles Public Library. She has also been a contributor to On Bunker Hill and the 1947project, where she wrote stories about Los Angeles's notorious past. She grew up in western Pennsylvania and studied at Rhodes College and the University of Wisconsin. She is the author of 2019 Printz Honor Book I, Claudia, Camp So-and-So and Dead to Me. Mary lives in Los Angeles with her husband and son.
