Margaret Stohl - Royce Rolls (San Francisco)

Tuesday, April 4, 2017 - 6:00pm

In conversation with Alyson Noel
Special Event for YA Readers

Sixteen-year-old Bentley Royce seems to have it all: an actual Bentley, tuition to a fancy private school, lavish vacations, and everything else that comes along with being an LA starlet. But after five seasons on her family's reality show, Rolling with the Royces, and a lifetime of dealing with her narcissistic sister, Porsche, media-obsessed mother, Mercedes, and somewhat clueless brother, Maybach, Bentley wants out. Luckily for her, without a hook for season six, cancellation is looming and freedom is nigh. With their lifestyle on the brink, however, Bentley's family starts to crumble, and one thing becomes startlingly clear--without the show, there is no family. And since Bentley loves her family, she has to do the unthinkable--save the show. But when her future brother-in-law's car goes over a cliff with both Bentley and her sister's fianc inside-on the day of the big made-for-TV wedding, no less-things get real.

Really real. Like, not reality show real.

Told in a tongue-in-cheek voice that takes a swipe at all things Hollywood, Royce Rolls is a laugh-out-loud funny romp with an LA noir twist about what it means to grow up with the cameras rolling and what really happens behind the scenes.

Margaret Stohl is the #1 New York Times bestselling co-author of the "Beautiful Creatures" series. She is also the author of the instant bestseller Black Widow: Forever Red, and its sequel Black Widow: Red Vengeance. Growing up in the shadow of Hollywood, Margaret spent her adolescence crank-calling Harrison Ford, living across the hall from a John Waters starlet, and waving to Starline Tours buses as they stopped to take pictures of her P.E. class at Mulholland Hall, where she first met Bentley Royce. These are and are not her stories.

Anne Dana - Monsieuir Pierre (Sausalito)

Sunday, April 23, 2017 - 11:00am

Special Children's Event

Will an adventurous octopus ever find a friend? In Monsieur Pierre, follow the lonely Monsieur Pierre Poulpe from his home in a Paris fountain all the way to California. Humorous illustrations chart his search for a friend across the Seine, up the Eiffel Tower, into the Louvre, out to Notre Dame and up Montmartre. Along the way, he surprises some of the most famous inhabitants of the City of Light. Sadly, none of them are eager to befriend a little octopus. Just when it seems all is lost, Pierre has a clever idea that takes him to a new land with two new friends. In a surprise ending, Pierre and his new friends are visited in his new home by some of the famous Parisians he left behind.

Anne Dana, author and illustrator, is a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. She lives aboard a boat docked on the San Francisco Bay and has been a cephalopod admirer her entire life.
