Marie Lu is one of the most beloved writers of YA literature. and one of Enterntainment Weekly's 27 female authors who are ruling science fiction and fantasy right now. With over 2.2 million books in print, Marie Lu has been dubbed a “hit factory” by the New York Times. We obsessed over the blockbuster Legend series. Obsessed. We went on to enthuse over the #1 New York Times-bestselling Young Elites series. And we’re thrilled to welcome her back with Warcross, a sci-fi thriller that conjures an immersive, exhilarating world in which a game called Warcross takes the world by storm, one girls hacks her way into its dangerous depths, and where choosing who to trust may be the biggest gamble of all. Like the worlds of Ready Player One and The Matrix, Warcross takes us into a strikingly realistic vision of what the future may hold, where the lines are blurred and the effects of video games seep from the virtual world into reality.
Marie Lu graduated from the University of Southern California and jumped into the video game industry, working for Disney Interactive Studios as a Flash artist. For the first time, she draws directly from her years working in the video game industry to create the utterly expansive world of Warcross that will draw in readers and keep you thinking long after you turn the last page.
Don’t miss this opportunity to meet Marie Lu and talk all things Warcross, a book that is already generating considerable buzz as her most exciting work yet. She'll be chatting with Caitlin Harrington, a San Francisco-based journalist who contributes to Wired and San Francisco Magazine
