GA – Spill Zone Signing

Avid Bookshop welcomes Scott Westerfeld in celebration of his latest book SPILL ZONE. The reading will take place at the Prince Avenue bookshop location on Friday, May 5, from 6:30-7:30 p.m. and is free and open to the public. Scott will be in-conversation with Avid Bookshop’s own bookseller and middle grade author Caleb Zane Huett.

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Three years ago an event destroyed the small city of Poughkeepsie, forever changing reality within its borders. Uncanny manifestations and lethal dangers now await anyone who enters the Spill Zone.

The Spill claimed Addison’s parents and scarred her little sister, Lexa, who hasn t spoken since. Addison provides for her sister by photographing the Zone’s twisted attractions on illicit midnight rides. Art collectors pay top dollar for these bizarre images, but getting close enough for the perfect shot can mean death or worse.

When an eccentric collector makes a million-dollar offer, Addison breaks her own hard-learned rules of survival and ventures farther than she has ever dared. Within the Spill Zone, Hell awaits and it seems to be calling Addison’s name.

Scott Westerfeld is the author of the worldwide bestselling UGLIES series and the Locus Award-winning LEVIATHAN series, and is co-author of the ZEROES trilogy. His other novels include the NEW YORK TIMES bestseller AFTERWORLDS, THE LAST DAYS, PEEPS, SO YESTERDAY, and the MIDNIGHTERS trilogy.

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.
