Left Bank Books presents bestselling Zita the Spacegirl author Ben Hatke on Saturday, October 1, 2016 at 4:00 PM, who will sign and discuss his graphic novel retelling of Jack and the Beanstalk, Mighty Jack.
This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase from Left Bank Books of any of Ben Hatke’s titles will be required to enter the signing line.
Jack might be the only kid in the world who’s dreading summer. But he’s got a good reason: summer is when his single mom takes a second job and leaves him at home to watch his autistic kid sister, Maddy. It’s a lot of responsibility, and it’s boring, too, because Maddy doesn’t talk. Ever. But then, one day at the flea market, Maddy does talk to tell Jack to trade their mom’s car for a box of mysterious seeds. It’s the best mistake Jack has ever made.

Patrick McDonnell (creator of Mutts) appears at the Athens-Clarke County Library on Thursday, October 6, 2016 at 6:30 PM to sign his new book Tek: The Modern Cave Boy!
From a beloved, bestselling Caldecott Honor recipient comes a hilarious reminder of how technology can take us backward … all the way to the times of prehistoric man!
Tek is a cave boy in love with tech. His tablet, video games, phone, and TV keep him deep in his cave, glued to his devices, day in and day out. He never sees his friends or family, and his ability to communicate has devolved to just one word: “UGH”! Can anyone convince Tek to unplug and come outside into the big, beautiful world?
In addition to an imaginative and totally relatable story, ‘Tek’ also offers a distinctive design — including a tablet-shaped cover and a password “screen” — that’s sure to pique the interest of even the wariest young readers.
