Join us for a book talk with Angel Hawkin and her debut YA novel "THE POINT."
THE POINT is a coming-of-age young adult fiction novel that follows Willoughs throughout his first year of college. Willoughs is quirky, and possibly one of the most sidetracked angsty youth who has a lot to say but then perhaps nothing at all. Willoughs is part of a band and decides he wants to try something new which ultimately leads him to meet Alice. Alice is a free-spirited, yet strong-willed coed with a clouded past that makes Willoughs start to open his eyes of there being more to life than the one he grew up in within Fernwood.
Angel I. Hawkins has always enjoyed writing since she was a very young child. Born in California and living in several states in between before settling down in New York City, her love for writing and reading never faltered. In fact, even when she initially studied pre-medical course work during her undergrad years, she also majored in English literature. After deciding that medicine was not the direction she wanted to pursue, she switched career tracks to education and now currently teaches English to her middle school students. She hopes to inspire her students and foster a love for literature as well as fulfill her aspirations of writing young adult novels and contemporary romances. She resides in New York City with her amazing husband and their two dog children, Hazelnut and Mocha.
