Zia Erases the World

Buffalo Street Books is proud to host a very special event with author Bree Barton, in conversation with students from Elizabeth Ann Clune Montessori School, about her book "Zia Erases the World."

About the Book

"Zia Erases the World" is a raw, funny, and at times heartbreaking middle grade novel. In it author Bree Barton reveals how - with the right kind of help - our darkest moments can nudge us toward the light. 

About the Event

This event is curated in partnership with the Elizabeth Ann Clune Montessori School of Ithaca (EACMSI) and NAMI Fingerlakes. Author Barton worked with 4th-6th graders at EACMSI on a writing project based on the book, and two of those young people will ask questions of the author and talk about the book during the event.

About the Author

Bree Barton lives in mythical Ithaca with her partner and two waggish dogs. She wrote her first book as “a humble child of ten”—her exact words in the query letter she sent to editors. Those editors told her to keep writing, and luckily, she did. Bree was eleven when her journey with the Shadoom began, and stories offered a special kind of balm. A handful of years later, she is the author of several young adult novels published in seven countries and four languages. Bree teaches dance and writing and loves connecting with readers of all ages. Zia Erases the World is her middle grade debut.
