CA – Cecil Castellucci & Sally J. Pla Signing

Press Release:

Mysterious Galaxy is happy to host writers Cecil Castellucci and Sally Pla on Thursday, February 15, 2018 at 7:00 PM for their new releases, Don’t Cosplay with My Heart and Stanley Will Probably Be Fine! We will be transforming the store into a mini comics & cosplay celebration for the evening. Cosplay, costumes, and general geekery strongly encouraged!

In Don’t Cosplay with My Heart, Edan Kupferman loves escaping into cosplay as her favorite character, Gargantua – especially when her real life is a mess. When a boy at school gets her into her element at ComicCon, she begins to learn how to be her own hero.

Cecil has written several young adult books and graphic novels, including The Plain Janes, Soupy Leaves Home, and Moving Target: A Princess Leia Adventure. In addition to writing, she is the Children’s Correspondence Coordinator for The Rumpus and the founding YA Editor at the LA Review of Books. She currently resides in Los Angeles.

In Stanley Will Probably Be Fine, a young boy escapes into comics when he gets overwhelmed by the world around him. He invents his own superhero, John Lockdown, and with his help tackles a scavenger hunt through downtown San Diego to overcome his fears. School Library Journal praises it as “an excellent addition to promote social-emotional learning.”

Sally’s previous work includes The Someday Birds and Benji, The Bad Day, and Me. She is a prolific traveler and an advocate for neurodiversity. She currently lives in Southern California with her family and giant goldendoodle pup.

CA – Don’t Cosplay with My Heart Signing

Author Cecil Castellucci appears at Vroman’s Bookstore on Wednesday, January 10, 2018 at 7:00 PM to her new novel DON’T COSPLAY WITH MY HEART.

When Edan Kupferman dresses up like her favorite character, Gargantua, she feels tall and powerful. That’s important right now, because her family is a mess, her best friend is gone for the summer, her crush is confusing, and Edan’s feeling small and not sure which end is up. When Edan’s cosplaying, she can be angry, loud, and not the good girl everyone thinks she is. And when she’s at conventions, she feels like she’s found her own Team Tomorrow. But when her personal life starts to spiral out of control, Edan has to figure out whether she needs a sidekick, or if she has the strength to be the hero of her own story.

Cecil Castellucci is the author of books and graphic novels for young adults including Boy Proof, The Plain Janes, First Day on Earth and the Eisner-nominated Odd Duck. She is currently writing Shade the Changing Girl, Vol. 1 Earth Girl Made Easy, an ongoing comic on Gerard Way’s DC Young Animal imprint. Her picture book, Grandma’s Gloves, won the California Book Award Gold Medal. She lives in Los Angeles.
