We’re excited to welcome three talented young adult authors to the store as they discuss their own work and the current trends in the teen book world! On Saturday, March 24th, from 3:30-5:30 pm, Caitlin Kittredge, Jessica Spotswood, and Tiffany Trent will be here to answer your most burning questions.
At the opening of Caitlin Kittredge’s novel Iron Thorn, the necrovirus is blamed for an epidemic of madness, for the strange and eldritch creatures that roam the streets of Lovecraft after dark, and for everything that the city leaders deem Heretical–born of the belief in magic and witchcraft. For Aoife Grayson, time is growing shorter and shorter by the day. Can she prevent fate from catching her in its curse? A fantastic fantasy thriller you won’t want to put down!
Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood; Ages 14+; Putnam Publishing Group (Penguin); 17.99 (hardback)
In Jessica Spotswood’s Born Wicked, everyone knows Cate Cahill and her sisters are eccentric. Too pretty, too reclusive, and far too educated for their own good. But the truth is even worse–they’re witches. And if their secret is discovered by the priests of the Brotherhood, it would mean an asylum, a prison ship, or an early grave. We’re thrilled to welcome DC-gal Jessica back to the store!
Tiffany Trent’s The Unnaturalists chronicles the story of Vespa Nyx, who wants nothing more than to spend the rest of her life cataloging Unnatural creatures in her father’s museum. As she gets older, though, the requirement to become a lady and find a husband looms over her. Syrus Reed’s Tinker family has always served and revered the Unnaturals from afar, but when his family is captured to be refinery slaves, he finds that his fate may be bound up with Vespa’s–and with the Unnaturals. Pre-order this spine-tingling read (out August 14, 2012) now!
