Starting this Saturday, Nov. 12, we're featuring a new autographed book on our shelves: Kangaroo Kisses by award-winning author, actress, and child-rights activist Nandana Sen.
Translated into 13 languages (most recently Bengali), Kangaroo Kisses is a lovely mix of fantasty and real life as one mischievous child delays getting ready for bed, and has some amazing wildlife encounters along the way. If you can't make it to Nandana's incredible hour of storytelling, play-acting, mask-making, book signing, and reading from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. this Saturday, Nandana will happily personalize books for you. Please contact email@example.com with your special requests.

Greenglass House by Kate Milford. As lucky as we are to have Kate as a bookseller, we are even luckier to have her as the author of the best middle grade novel of 2014. At press time, Kate is a National Book Award nominee, Edgar Award nominee, Nebula Award nominee, and an exceptional juggler (literally. She used to work at a Renaissance Faire, because of course she did). Place your order for a signed & personalized copy of Greenglass House at any time, and we’ll happily get it to you.
The Cost of All Things by Maggie Lehrman. On sale 5/12/15. What would you give for the one change you want more than anything, and would the price you pay be worth it? Exquisitely plotted and masterfully written, The Cost of All Things is easily the best YA debut of 2015. Says author Lauren Myracle: "“The most creepily awesome cautionary tale EVER. Magic—or hekame—does exist, and wishes can be granted. . . but always at a cost. Brilliant, provocative, and absolutely spellbinding.” We’re honored to be hosting Maggie for her first launch event on 5/12/15. Orders for signed copies can be placed at any time.
Hello, Goodbye, and Everything in Between by Jennifer E. Smith. On sale 9/1/15. Ask us to assign reading to the 15 year old girls of the world and the first name you’ll hear in response is Jen Smith. Orders can be placed for signed copies of Hello, Goodbye and Everything in Between at any time. Please be advised that they will not ship out until after the book releases in September.
Edgewater by Courtney Shienmel. On Sale 9/8/15. Lorrie Hollander used to be a rich girl, but now she's lost everything because of the secrets and lies of the people around her.

An intergenerational saga of scandal and secrets, crumbling fortunes and ruined reputations...Put on your grandma's Chanel and brace yourself for this one. Please place your order by 10/20/15.
