UT – Tempests and Slaughter Signing

Author Tamora Pierce appears at Salt Lake City Public Library on Friday, February 9, 2018 at 7:00 PM for a reading and signing of her new YA fantasy novel, Tempests and Slaughter.

Arram Draper is on the path to becoming one of the realm’s most powerful mages. The youngest student in his class at the Imperial University of Carthak, he has a Gift with unlimited potential for greatness–and for attracting trouble. At his side are his two best friends: Varice, a clever girl with an often-overlooked talent, and Ozorne, the “leftover prince” with secret ambitions. Together, these three friends forge a bond that will one day shape kingdoms. And as Ozorne gets closer to the throne and Varice gets closer to Arram’s heart, Arram realizes that one day –soon–he will have to decide where his loyalties truly lie.

In the Numair Chronicles, readers will be rewarded with the never-before-told story of how Numair Salmalin came to Tortall. Newcomers will discover an unforgettable fantasy adventure where a kingdom’s future rests on the shoulders of a talented young man with a knack for making vicious enemies.

UT – Mighty Jack and the Goblin King Signing

Ben Hatke appears in conversation with local author Matthew J. Kirby at the King’s English Bookshop on Thursday, September 28th at 7:00 PM to present his newest middle grade book in the Mighty Jack graphic novel series, Mighty Jack and the Goblin King.

Like a bolt from the blue, Jack’s little sister Maddy is gone—carried into another realm by an ogre. When Jack follows Maddy’s captor through the portal, he is ready for anything . . . except what he finds waiting for him in the floating crossroads between worlds. Even the power of his magic plants may not be enough to get him back to earth alive. But when Jack finds himself in a tough spot, help comes from the most unlikely person: the goblin king!

Ben Hatke is the author and illustrator of the New York Times bestselling Zita the Spacegirl trilogy, the picture books Julia’s House for Lost Creatures and Nobody Likes a Goblin, and the graphic novels Little Robot and Mighty Jack. He lives and works in the Shenandoah Valley with his wife and their boisterous pack of daughters.
