We are back in full swing this week! Blue Willow Bookshop is leading the charge with three author events. I’ll see you at one (or more) of these events!
Join Kiera Cass for a discussion and signing of her new novel for teens, THE SIREN. Kahlen is a Siren, bound to serve the Ocean by luring humans to watery graves with her voice, which is deadly to any human who hears it. Akinli is human a kind, handsome boy who’s everything Kahlen ever dreamed of. Falling in love puts them both in danger . . . but Kahlen can’t bear to stay away. Will she risk everything to follow her heart?
Local author Crystal Allen launches her third book for young readers, THE MAGNIFICENT MYA TIBBS: SPIRIT WEEK SHOWDOWN. Nine-year-old Mya Tibbs is boot-scootin excited for the best week of the whole school year SPIRIT WEEK She and her megapopular best friend, Naomi Jackson, even made a pinky promise to be Spirit Week partners so they can win the big prize: special VIP tickets to the Fall Festival. But when the partner picking goes horribly wrong, Mya gets paired with Mean Connie Tate the biggest bully in school. And she can t get out of it.
Good gravy. Now Naomi is friend-ending mad at Mya for breaking a promise even though Mya couldn t help it and everyone at school is calling Mya names. Can Mya work with Mean Connie to win the VIP tickets and get her best friend back?

Pax and Peter have been inseparable ever since Peter rescued him as a kit. But one day, the unimaginable happens: Peter’s dad enlists in the military and makes him return the fox to the wild. At his grandfather’s house, three hundred miles away from home, Peter knows he isn’t where he should be with Pax. He strikes out on his own despite the encroaching war, spurred by love, loyalty, and grief, to be reunited with his fox. Meanwhile Pax, steadfastly waiting for his boy, embarks on adventures and discoveries of his own. . . .
