Middle Grade Author Event: MarcyKate Connolly and Monica Tesler
We are thrilled to welcome back middle grade author MarcyKate Connolly to the bookstore and excited she will be joined by fellow author Monica Tesler. MarcyKate will be reading from her new release, "Comet Rising", the riveting conclusion of the duology "Shadow Weaver". Lady Aisling attacks again and captures Lucas' parents, Lucas, Emmeline and Dar barely escape. With nothing left to lose, Emmeline and Lucas recruit other children with magical abilities to march against Lady Aisling and free those she has taken captive. But then Dar escapes, and they find themselves watching their backs as they plan their attack. Can Emmeline and Lucas use their powers to defeat evil once and for all? MarcyKate Connolly is a NYT bestselling author living in New England with her family and pugs. She is a self proclaimed caffeine addict and voracious reader. She has also written the popular fantasy novels, "Monstrous" and "Ravenous". Monica Tesler will be reading from, "The Heroes Return", the fourth novel of her Bounders series. Thirteen years ago, Earth Force—a space-military agency—discovered a connection between brain structure and space travel. Now they’ve brought together a team of cadets, called Bounders, to be trained as elite astronauts able to pilot ships that can travel across the galaxy in an instant. Jasper is at the Space Bound school in outer space due to his special ability. He has joined other students like him to harness their talents. In this story, Jasper and Mira must escape the Rift and deliver the Youli's message to Earth Force before it's too late. At first, Jasper revels in the spotlight. But it soon becomes clear that if Jasper doesn’t convince Earth Force to stop fighting—and soon—there won’t be an Earth left to fight for, and he may never see Mira again. Monica Tesler lives south of Boston with her husband and two boys. She writes on the commuter boat, in coffee shops, and at her kitchen table. She tries to meditate every day but often ends up fantasizing about space, time travel, or strange lands, both real and imagined. Join us this afternoon as we traveled out of this world into a world of magic and fantasy with these two amazing authors!
