About Ghosts
Eleven-year-old Catrina and her family are moving to the small coastal town of Bahía de la Luna because her younger sister, Maya, is sick. Cat isn’t happy about leaving her friends, but she tries not to complain because she knows Maya will benefit from the clean, cool air that blows in from the sea. As the girls settle in, they learn there’s something a little spooky about their new town.

Writer MARJORIE LIU (Han Solo, Astonishing X-Men) and artist SANA TAKEDA (Ms. Marvel, X-23) appear at Books Inc. on Tuesday, July 26, 2016 at 7:00pm!

Press Release:

New York Times-bestselling author Marjorie Liu shares the first installment in her new gripping graphic novel series, Monstress, Volume 1: Awakening. Described as “a delight” by Neil Gaiman, Marjorie and illustrator Sana Takeda have created a richly imagined world of art deco-inflected steam punk that will have readers highly anticipating the next book in the series. Monstress tells the story of a teenage girl who is struggling to survive the trauma of war, and who shares a mysterious psychic link with a monster of tremendous power, a connection that will transform them both and make them the target of both human and otherworldly powers. Illustrator Sana Takeda will be joining Marjorie for this very special evening.
