Author Visits!

We are very excited to tell you that Burbank Public Library will be receiving a visit from YA fantasy author LEIGH BARDUGO on February 5th! She is the author of the Grisha series, which started with Shadow and Bone and continued with Siege and Storm, both New York Times bestsellers. The third book, Ruin and Rising, comes out next year.

If you would like to read about the books, our librarian Daryl M. reviewed both of them for our main library blog, here and here. If you would like to read the books, please check them out from our Young Adult Fiction section at any of our three library branches! We also hope to read the first one with at least one and perhaps two of our book clubs before the event.

Ms. Bardugo will speak, answer questions, and autograph. Both books will be available for purchase.

   




On March 6th, HOLLY GOLDBERG SLOAN will be speaking and autographing for us! She wrote the YA realistic fiction novel I'll Be There, which was my favorite book of 2012, and won the Peggy Miller Award for Young Adult Literature from the Children's Literature Council of Southern California (CLCSC).

Her new book is Counting by 7swhich was an Amazon Best Book of the Year, a B.E.A. BUZZ Book 2013, a Junior Library Guild Selection, a Kids Indie Next List #4 of Top Ten Autumn 2013, and a Texas Bluebonnet Award Nominee 2014-2015! Whew!

We are reading I'll Be There for our December meeting of 8+9 Book Club, and hope to read it in the 10-12 Club as well. You can check out both books from our Young Adult Fiction sections, and they, too, will be available for purchase at the event.
