AUTHOR EVENT: MERRY SISTERS OF FATE

November 10, 7 pm at the Johnson County Central Resource Library   

YA Authors Tessa Gratton, Maggie Stiefvater and Brenna Yovanoff are critique partners as well as friends. They will share their “dark, weird and disturbingly beautiful” fiction at an author event hosted by the Johnson County Resource Library, 9875 W. 87th Street, Overland Park, KS, 66212.  

The three authors will talk about their experiences as YA authors and the “flesh-eating faeries, demons in love, unearthly magicians and alternate histories” that inhabit their novels, including their collection of short stories, The Curiosities.

Mysteryscape will be selling The Curiosities at the event and several of the authors’ other titles. However, we recommend reserving a copy of their books before the event (or a signed copy after the event) by emailing us or calling 913-649-0000.
