RiverlandFran Wilde & Rachel Hartman at Children’s Book World – Kids & Teen Event

Meet the authors! Full of adventure and heart, Fran Wilde’s book, Riverland (ages 10-14), is a story about the bond between two sisters and how they must make their own magic to protect each other and save the ones they love. In Tess of the Road (ages 13+) Rachel Hartman returns to the spellbinding world of the Southlands she created in her bestselling Seraphina and explores self-reliance and redemption in this wholly original fantasy.

In late September, 1957, Henry and Effie, very young newlyweds from Georgia, arrive in Cape May, New Jersey for their honeymoon only to find the town is deserted. Then they meet a glamorous set of people who sweep them up into their drama. The empty beach town becomes their playground, and the couple slips from innocence into betrayal, with irrevocable consequences. Erotic and moving, this novel is about marriage, love and sexuality, and the lifelong repercussions they reap.

Also, they came together to remind everyone, they too are writers, by sharing their work.
This was another edition of “The Table Reading Series”, created by Los Ángeles novelist Natasha Deón. It began last year with “the goal to help raise up the next generation of writers and readers to be actively engaged in the writing community; to invest in them, give them a space to begin, to reach new or estranged writers in Los Angeles, and to provide fresh outlets for writers and fans to engage and contribute to the vibrancy of the Los Angeles literary community.”
