NORWALK, CT - Norwalk Community College adjunct instructor Meira Rosenberg of Stamford will read from her new book, "Indiana Bamboo," a novel for middle grade youth about a precocious 11-year-old girl sleuth, at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, October 3 in the NCC Baker Library.

The book was published in March by Iris Press after Rosenberg won the Tennessee Mountain Writers Excalibur Award competition for first-time novelists. She received a $500 cash prize and a publishing contract.

Rosenberg has taught English and Developmental English at NCC for more than nine years. She also is an attorney and a formpr Literary Trustee of the Lorraine Hansberry Properties Trust. She has taught at the University of Connecticut in Stamford and at the Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts/Columbia University Law School Art Law Clinic.

The author began "Indiana Bamboo" while completing her Master of Fine Arts degree in Creative Writing at Manhattanville College. The book “grew from her memories and imaginings” of the small town in Indiana where she was raised. She has published personal essays in the past, but children's literature is her passion.

After "Indiana Bamboo" was published, Rosenberg visited several elementary schools to read to the students. She is currently working on another adventure for her character, Indiana Bamboo.

Rosenberg is available for interviews. Her first name is pronounced “MEER-ah.”
