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.
