Colleen AF Venable, Sara Faring, and Jennifer Mathieu will speak about and sign their new books, Kiss Number 8, The Tenth Girl, and The Liars of Mariposa Island on Saturday, October 26th at *4:00pm*.
About Kiss Number 8:
Mads is pretty happy with her life. She goes to church with her family, minor league baseball games with her dad, and goofs off with her best friend Cat. But her dad is hiding something big — so big it could tear her family apart. And that’s just the beginning of her problems: Mads is starting to figure out that the only person she wants to kiss is Cat. Kiss Number 8 is a graphic novel that tells a layered, funny, sharp-edged story of teen sexuality and family secrets.
About The Tenth Girl:
At the southern tip of South America looms an isolated finishing school. For Mavi — a Buenos Aires native fleeing the military regime that took her mother — it offers an escape to a new life as a young teacher to Argentina’s elite girls. But one of Mavi’s ten students is missing, and when students and teachers alike begin to behave as if possessed, the forces haunting this unholy cliff will no longer be ignored. Simmering in Patagonian myth, The Tenth Girl is a gothic psychological thriller with a haunting twist.
About The Liars of Mariposa Island:
Every year, summer begins when the Callahans arrive on Mariposa Island. That’s when Elena Finney gets to escape her unstable, controlling mother by babysitting for their two children. Joaquin Finney just graduated from high school and dreams about going to California to find his father and escape his mother’s manipulation. The Liars of Mariposa Island follows siblings Elena and Joaquin, with flashbacks to their mother's experience as a teenage refugee fleeing the Cuban revolution.
