Author Ebony LaDelle

YORK, PA – One of People magazine’s picks for best summer reads, “Love Radio”, will be part of the discussion when York County teens talk with the book’s author Ebony LaDelle via Zoom on Wednesday, August 2. Interested teens, age 12 – 18, are invited to attend a book party and virtual author visit at one of four library locations: Martin Library, Guthrie Memorial Library, Kreutz Creek Library and Kaltreider-Benfer Library. The book party starts at 1:00 p.m. and includes refreshments and a “Love Radio” playlist selected by the author. At 2:00 p.m., LaDelle will join the teens virtually to talk about becoming a writer, her influences, and her novel.

The free event is part of the York County Libraries “All Together Now” SummerQuest program. Registration is required and underway at The first 24 youth to register for the in-library events will receive a free copy of the book. Teens unable to attend in person will receive a Zoom link to join from home.

In addition to its People magazine accolades, “Love Radio” is a 2023 Audie Award Finalist, and a 2023 Michigan Notable Book. It was also Apple Books’ best book of 2022, an Amazon’s Editor Pick, and was featured on the Today Show. Prior to being an author, LaDelle was a brand marketing director in book publishing and worked at Penguin Random House and HarperCollins.

“Having the opportunity to connect directly with Ebony is an incredible opportunity for area teens,” says York County Libraries President Robert F. Lambert. “It is always enlightening to hear what the author was thinking about the characters and storyline when writing. But it is also valuable to explore writing as a possible career. Ebony comes to us with both a publishing and writing experience, so that is a giant plus for York County teens.”

LaDelle’s virtual visit is one of several programs available for York County teens during YCL’s annual summer learning program. Thanks to the generous support of The York Water Company, WellSpan Health, and The GIANT Company, the SummerQuest program is provided free of cost to participants in York County.
