Authors in the Area
Thursday, February 5th 7:00 p.m: #1 New York Times bestselling author Gordon Korman will present and sign his new book, Masterminds. Eli has never left his idyllic town.... Why would he want to? But everything changes the day he and his friend Randy bike to the ege of the city limits, and Eli collapses. A crew of security-or "Purple People Eaters," as the kids call them-descend via helicopter, and when Eli awakens, he is in the hospital, and Randy and his family are gone. Unravel the conspiracy in this first book of a thrilling new series.

Tuesday, February 10th, 6:30 pm.:  Bestselling author Erin Hunter will present and sign her new book, Survivors: Storm of Dogs.  Now that their ruthless former Alpha has left the Wild Pack and Sweet has taken his place, the dogs should finally be able to find peace in their new home. But they must constantly keep watch for signs of Blade and her Fierce Dogs, and Lucky's dreams are troubled by visions of a terrifying future-a future that will force every dog to fight tooth and claw for survival.
