TX – The Battle for WondLa Signing

wondla14

TONY DITERLIZZI, bestselling author & illustrator of The Spiderwick Chronicles, speaks and signs at BookPeople on Thursday, May 8 at 7:00 PM to celebrate the release of The Battle for WondLa: Search for WondLa #3

Press Release:

Eva Nine is at her bravest in the final book in the bestselling trilogy from the fantastical mind of Tony DiTerlizzi. All hope for a peaceful coexistence between humankind and aliens seems lost. Eva has gone into hiding for fear of luring the wicked Loroc to her companions. However, news of the city Solas being captured by the human leader, Cadmus Pryde, forces Eva into action once again. With help from an unlikely ally, Eva tries to thwart Loroc’s ultimate plan for both mankind and the alien life on Orbona. Complete with lavish two-color illustrations and spot art throughout, and starring a host of unforgettable characters that reinforce the importance of friendship, The Battle for WondLa has all the hallmarks of a classic book–of the future.

TONY DITERLIZZI is a bestselling author and illustrator who has been creating books with Simon & Schuster for more than a decade. From his fanciful picture books like Jimmy Zangwow’s Out-of-this-World Moon Pie Adventure, Adventure of Meno (with his wife, Angela), and The Spider & The Fly (a Caldecott Honor book), to chapter books like Kenny and The Dragon and The Search for WondLa.” Tony always imbues his stories with a rich imagination. His middle grade series, The Spiderwick Chronicles (with Holly Black), has sold millions of copies, been adapted into a feature film, and has been translated in more than thirty countries.

In order to have anything signed at a BookPeople event, a copy of the event book must be purchased from BookPeople. If you purchase your book from BookPeople in advance of the event, please save your receipt and present it at the event.

TX – The Reluctant Assassin Signing

wra

Bestselling Author of the Artemis Fowl series EOIN COLFER appears at BookPeople to speak and sign his new novel WARP: The Reluctant Assassin on Friday, April 11 at 6:00 PM!

Artemis Fowl fans, today is a big day! Eoin Colfer is returning to BookPeople to present the first book in his brand new series, Warp: The Reluctant Assassin. Riley, a teen orphan boy living in Victorian London, has had the misfortune of being apprenticed to Albert Garrick, an illusionist who uses his conjuring skills to gain access to victims’ dwellings. When an intended victim turns out to be a scientist from the future, Riley is unwittingly transported via wormhole to modern day London, followed closely by Garrick. He must return to Victorian London to save the world!
PLEASE READ:

The speaking portion of this event is free and open to the public.

Tickets are only required for the signing portion of the event.

Books & tickets are now available. Purchasing a book online automatically assigns you a ticket for the signing. There is no separate “ticket” item to add to your cart.

We are also taking orders for signed copies of Artemis Fowl The Last Guardian for those who cannot make it to the event. We ship all over the world.

Riley, a teen orphan boy living in Victorian London, has had the misfortune of being apprenticed to Albert Garrick, an illusionist who has fallen on difficult times and now uses his unique conjuring skills to gain access to victims’ dwellings. On one such escapade, Garrick brings his reluctant apprentice along and urges him to commit his first killing. Riley is saved from having to commit the grisly act when the intended victim turns out to be a scientist from the future, part of the FBI’s Witness Anonymous Relocation Program (WARP) Riley is unwittingly transported via wormhole to modern day London, followed closely by Garrick.

In modern London, Riley is helped by Chevron Savano, a nineteen-year-old FBI agent sent to London as punishment after a disastrous undercover, anti-terrorist operation in Los Angeles. Together Riley and Chevie must evade Garrick, who has been fundamentally altered by his trip through the wormhole. Garrick is now not only evil, but he also possesses all of the scientist’s knowledge. He is determined to track Riley down and use the timekey in Chevie’s possession to make his way back to Victorian London where he can literally change the world.

EOIN COLFER is a former elementary school teacher and the author of the bestselling Artemis Fowl series. He is also the author of Airman; Half Moon Investigations; The Supernaturalist; Eoin Colfer’s Legend of Spud Murphy and Legend of Captain Crow’s Teeth; and The Wish List.
