Wendy Spinale - Everland (Corte Madera)

Friday, June 17, 2016 - 6:00pm

Special Young Adult Readers Event!

Forget the story of Peter Pan you know. Because in Everland, the only way to grow up is to survive. 

London has been destroyed in a blitz of bombs and disease. The only ones who have survived are children, among them Gwen Darling and her siblings, Joanna and Mikey. They spend their nights scavenging and their days avoiding the ruthless Marauders -- the German Army led by Captain Hanz Otto Oswald Kretschmer.

Unsure if the virus has spread past England's borders but desperate to leave, Captain Hook hunts for a cure, which he thinks can be found in one of the survivors. He and his Marauders stalk the streets snatching children for experimentation. None ever return. Until the day they grab Joanna. As Gwen sets out to save her, she meets a mysterious boy named Pete. Pete offers the assistance of his gang of Lost Boys and the fierce sharpshooter Bella, who have all been living in a city hidden underground. But in a place where help has a steep price and every promise is bound by blood, it will cost Gwen. And are she, Pete, the Lost Boys, and Bella enough to outsmart Captain Hook?

Wendy Spinale is a former character actor for the Disneyland theme park (so she's very familiar with the world of make-believe). Everland is her debut novel. Wendy lives with her family in the California Bay Area.

Andrea Alban - Anya's War Paperback Book Launch (Corte Madera)

Sunday, April 17, 2016 - 4:00pm

Special Children's Event!

Anya Rosen and her family have left their home in Odessa for Shanghai, believing that China will be a safe haven from Hitler's forces. At first, Anya's life in the Jewish Quarter of Shanghai is privileged and relatively carefree: she has crushes on boys, fights with her mother, and longs to defy expectations just like her hero, Amelia Earhart.

Then Anya finds a baby a newborn abandoned on the street. Amelia Earhart goes missing. And it becomes dangerously clear that no place is safe not for Jewish families like the Rosens, not for Shanghai's poor, not for adventurous women pilots.

Based on a true story, Anya's War by Andrea Alban is a rich, transcendent novel about a little-known time in Holocaust history.

Andrea Alban is the author of several picture books, including The Happiness Tree for Feiwel and Friends, as well as Mother's Nature: Timeless Wisdom for the Journey into Motherhood and other adult inspirational books written under the name Andrea Alban Gosline. Anya's War is her first novel, and based on her own family's experiences during WWII. Andrea lives in San Francisco.

Chris Columbus - House of Secrets: Clash of the Worlds (Corte Madera)

Thursday, May 12, 2016 - 10:00am

Special Children's Event!

House of Secrets: Clash of the Worlds (Balzer + Bray, on-sale: May 3, 2016) is the exciting final book in the New York Times bestselling House of Secrets trilogy, a collaboration that began with famed Hollywood director Chris Columbus and Ned Vizzini and now ends with the addition of new collaborator—popular middle-grade author Chris Rylander. After their last adventure, the Walker kids thought they could finally go back to normal. They escaped Dahlia Kristoff, the evil Wind Witch, yet again, and this time, they managed to leave with a mysterious treasure map recovered from their encounter with the Nazis. But things don’t remain calm for long… While their previous journeys have taken them through the worlds of Denver Kristoff’s books, this time, the characters and creatures from Kristoff’s inventions are invading the real world! And it’s up to the Walker kids to keep the world from colliding and creating mass destruction and chaos. To only way to save the world is to track down the three magical worldkeepers from Kristoff’s books. Along the way, the kids will encounter dinosaurs, aliens, cowboys, and of course, the Wind Witch herself—and be faced with some of the deadliest choices they ever thought they’d have to make. House of Secrets: Clash of the Worlds is an utterly gripping, bighearted conclusion to this fantastic, popular fantasy series.

Chris Columbus has written, directed, and produced some of the most successful box-office hits in Hollywood history. He first made his name by writing several original scripts produced by Steven Spielberg, including the back-to-back hits Gremlins and The Goonies. As a director, Columbus has been at the helm of such iconic projects as Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Home Alone, Stepmom, and Mrs. Doubtfire. As a producer, Columbus was also behind the hit films, Night at the Museum and The Help.
