Padma Venkatraman

Bookworm Central was thrilled to have the opportunity to host author Padma Venkatraman for several days in September. Her recently released third book, A Time to Dance -- about a young dancer learning to cope after a horrific accident severs one of her legs -- had just received its 5th starred review. Padma talked about A Time to Dance, and her previous titles, Climbing the Stairs and Island’s End, to students at Lanier Middle School as well as Springfield Estates, Marstellar Middle School and the Northern Virginia Catholic Librarian Association Conference. Her presentations were stimulating and though-provoking, encouraging great questions and tremendous interest in her various titles.
