Kalena Miller, THE NIGHT WHEN NO ONE HAD SEX - Virtual Launch Party!

Kalena Miller, THE NIGHT WHEN NO ONE HAD SEXJoin Red Balloon book shop as we celebrate the release of Minnesota author Kalena Miller's debut young adult novel, The Night When No One Had Sex!   

Alternating between each character’s perspective and their ridiculous group chat, The Night When No One Had Sex finds a group of friends navigating the tenuous transition into adulthood and embracing the uncertainty of life after high school. Kalena will be in conversation with fellow author (and Hamline MFA graduate!) Lisa Frenkel Riddiough talking stories, writing, and more.
