Join us for a celebration of author
Join us tonight for a very special celebration of late author Bridget Zinn and her debut novel, Poison. A librarian and active member of the children's and YA communities in Madison, Wisconsin and Portland, Oregon, Bridget was a true book person who brought her love to bear on the page. The result is Poison, her new YA fantasy novel. We're honored to be part of a nationwide series of events remembering Bridget and celebrating her book and thrilled to welcome the following local Austin authors to celebrate with us: Lindsey Lane; P.J. Hoover; Cory Putnam Oakes; Nikki Loftin; Susan Kralovansky; Greg Leitich Smith; Cynthia Leitich Smith. Hoover, Oaks and Loftin will read an excerpt from Poison. Everyone will be available to sign copies of the book!
Sixteen-year-old Kyra, a highly-skilled potions master, is the only one who knows her kingdom is on the verge of destruction—which means she's the only one who can save it. Faced with no other choice, Kyra decides to do what she does best: poison the kingdom's future ruler, who also happens to be her former best friend.
In order to have anything signed at a BookPeople event, a copy of the event book must be purchased from BookPeople. If you purchase your book from BookPeople in advance of the event, please save your receipt and present it at the event.
Thank you for supporting Bridget Zinn, her friends and family, and your local independent bookstore!
