MD – Spill Zone Signing

Author Scott Westerfeld appears in conversation with Petra Mayer, Books Editor at NPR, to discuss and sign Spill Zone, his first graphic novel from First Second Books, at Bethesda Library on Thursday, May 4th at 7:00 PM.

This brand new graphic novel series begins in Poughkeepsie, where a mysterious accidental “spill” has killed most of the residents. The city is now banned from entry, and is dubbed the Spill Zone. Addie is one of the brave few who dare to venture into the decrepit city, crawling with frightening mutants. Selling high-quality photographs of these creatures is the only way she can provide for her younger sister after the spill claimed their parents. But strange happenings in her home cause Addie to wonder: is the Spill Zone really the result of a biochemical disaster, or something more supernatural? Ages 14 and up. Books sold by Politics and Prose.
