May 2014 Events


Looks like May is going to be just as busy as April in terms of book events. Don't forget, if you live in California, this Saturday May 3 is California Bookstore Day. You can check out the link below for more info but there will be events and exclusive items available at bookstores all over CA on Sat. So be sure to hit up your local bookstore (or two).


Saturday May 3, 2014 all day
California Bookstore Day
http://cabookstoreday.com/
California Bookstore Day is a statewide party on May 3, 2014 as big and varied as the state itself. It’s more than 90 stores in more than 80 zip codes putting their bells on and throwing out the welcome mat. Think Record Store Day, but for book nerds.

Each store will have its own party. The headline attraction are the just-for-us books you cannot get on any other day at any other place (click here to find the celebration closest to you). But there will also be readings, and prizes, and things to eat and drink. In some cases there will be famous authors and artists, and people writing live poetry.

What better way to prepare for a fabulous summer than to add titles from three HarperTeen authors to the summer reading stack! Recent WonderCon Guest and bestselling author Kiera Cass will discuss The One, the latest in the Selection series. Kevin Emerson takes a break from his Atlanteans series with Exile, the first in a new series celebrating romance, freedom, and rock and roll. And while the anti-bullying coming-of-age Tease is Amanda Maciel’s debut novel, she comes with a background in publishing as she is also an editor at Scholastic. The evening’s panel will be moderated by local YA book blogger Stacee Evans (Adventures of a Book Junkie).

This is a numbered signing. Numbers for the signing are free with the purchase of any one of our authors' new books from Mysterious Galaxy. Kevin Emerson's Exile and Amanda Maciel's Tease go on sale at 10am on Tuesday, April 29, and Kiera Cass' The One goes on sale at 10am on Tuesday, May 6.
