Jamaica Plain Resident Named Boston Public Library Writer-in-Residence
Jamaica Plain resident Lisa Rosinsky has been selected as the newest recipient of the Associates of the Boston Public Library Writer-in-Residence fellowship. Rosinsky was selected as the 2016-2017 winner by a panel of judges, including authors, young-adult book editors and librarians. The judges read materials in a blind judging process, and selected Rosinsky based on the strength of her proposed young-adult novel. "My next book (the one I'm writing during my residency) is tentatively titled 'Robin & Mariana,' and it's a queer, modern-day Robin Hood retelling that is also a road trip novel," said Rosinsky to Jamaica Plain News. "Robin is a slam poet and she lives in Baltimore; Mariana is a high-school dropout in Berkeley.
