Elana K. Arnold, Claire Legrand, & Anna-Marie McLemore in Conversation

Event date: 
Saturday, October 20, 2018 - 2:00pm

Elana K. Arnold, Claire Legrand, & Anna-Marie McLemore

Mysterious Galaxy is excited to be hosting some incredible Young Adult authors; Elana K. Arnold, Claire Legrand, and Anna-Marie McLemore for their new fall releases, Damsel, Sawkill Girls, and Blanca & Roja

Author, reader, pet lover, and speaker, Elana K. Arnold writes books for and about children and teens. Author of the National Book Award Finalist, What Girls are Made Of, Arnold is back with Damsel, a dark and twisted feminist fairy tale about a prince who is trapped in tradition; he must slay a dragon and rescue a damsel. This damsel, Ama, however has no recollection of her life before the rescue and everything now seems as if it’s merely a fairytale, until she discovers that there’s more to the legends and traditions. 

Claire Legrand, a musician turned author of the New York Times bestselling novel Furyborn, brings to life a new YA horror, Sawkill Girls. ALA Booklist describes this book as a “dangerous journey of growing up female…an intensely character-driven story about girls who support each other, girls who betray each other, and girls who love each other in many complicated ways. Strange, eerie, and unforgettable.” Legrand has also written many praiseworthy middle grade novels such as Some Kind of Happiness, which was a 2017 Edgar Award Nominee and Foxheart which was a 2016 Junior Library Guild Selection. 

Some fun facts about Anna-Marie McLemore is that she owns a two-feet tall Christmas tree, she’s a strong Apples to Apples player, and she knows how to Irish dance. Anna-Marie McLemore is an award-winning author of The Weight of Feathers, When the Moon was Ours, and Wild Beauty. Her newest book, Blanca & Roja, captures readers with its powerful themes and fantastical fairy tale, capturing aspects from beloved stories such as “Snow White” and “Swan Lake.” 

This event is free and seating is first come, first serve. To get a book signed during one of our events, a copy of the event book must be purchased through Mysterious Galaxy.
