Cornelia Funke is coming!

We have a special treat for you this year for TEEN TECH WEEK: Cornelia Funke!

That may not sound like a likely combination--why would we plan an author visit with a fantasy writer for a tech-oriented program? conjunction with her new series (Reckless and the soon-to-be-published Fearless), Funke has hired the special effects wizards at Mirada to design a MIRRORWORLD APP for you to download to your tablet. Some of the features include never-before-published short stories that expand on the series, but the best part is an exploration of all the visual aspects that will draw you further into this magical place.You can enter Chanute's Tavern, see the Tailor's story told in embroidery, learn about the botany of Mirrorworld, and more!

In addition to a presentation about her app, Cornelia will be pleased to autograph her books for you. The Friends of the Library will make available for sale a limited number of copies of Reckless (in paperback and in hardcover), as well as her previous book for tweens, Ghost Knight. Or, you can bring along your own copies of her books. Please be considerate and limit the number of autograph requests.

Better arrive early--this looks like being a popular program!
