We are thrilled to welcome Alexandra Bracken and Tamara Ireland Stone, two of our favorite authors, back to Kepler’s to celebrate their fabulous middle grade sequels: The Last Life of Prince Alastor, and Swap’d
Alexandra Bracken is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Darkest Minds series, (the movie was released in August of this year and starred Amandla Stenberg), Passenger, and Wayfarer. Her middle grade Prosper Redding series balances magic, humor, and heart and is about a modern New England boy who must rid himself of the ancient demon inhabiting his body and break his family’s curse. She sold her first book, Brightly Woven, as a senior in college, worked in children's book publishing as an editorial assistant and then in marketing, and now writes full time.
Tamara Ireland Stone is the author of Time and Time Again, a collection of her two novels Time Between Us and Time After Time, as well as the New York Times bestseller Every Last Word. Her middle grade Click’d series features Allie Navarro's explorations in computer programming and weaves together middle school friendship, first crushes, and serious coding skills that will have readers cheering Allie on from the first page to the last. She is a Silicon Valley native and has worked in the technology industry all her life, first testing Atari game boards in her parents’ garage, and later, co-founding a woman-owned marketing strategy firm where she worked with some of the world's largest software companies. She’s passionate about promoting STEM education for girls.
Don't miss this chance to hear two amazing authors showcase their wonderful middle grade sequels.
