RICK YANCEY - The 5th Wave
Thursday, May 16 at 7PM
Award-Winning Young Adult Author
We are INCREDIBLY excited to welcome award-winning author Rick Yancey here tonight with his highly anticipated, epic new Young Adult novel! Earth has been invaded, wave after wave, and now young Cassie must try to stay alive as one of Earth's last survivors. Full of action and high energy, fans of The Hunger Games and The Passage will be gripped by this story. Rick will give a short presentation tonight, followed by a Q&A and booksigning. It's going to be amazing! Join us!
About The 5th Wave:
After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one.
About RICK YANCEY:
Rick Yancey is the author of several adult novels and the memoir Confessions of a Tax Collector.

Printz honor, and the sequel, The Curse of the Wendigo, was a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize.
