Epic Reads Meet Up 2020

March 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Elana K. Arnold, Mindy McGinnis, and Evelyn Skye, three authors of dark and captivating YA novels, discuss their latest releases:

“Red Hood” by Elaina K. Arnold

Elana K. Arnold, author of the Printz Honor book Damsel, returns with a dark, engrossing, blood-drenched tale of the familiar threats to female power—and one girl’s journey to regain it.

Since her grandmother became her caretaker when she was four years old, Bisou Martel has lived a quiet life in a little house in Seattle. She’s kept mostly to herself. She’s been good. But then comes the night of homecoming, when she finds herself running for her life over roots and between trees, a fury of claws and teeth behind her. A new moon rises. And with it, questions about the blood in Bisou’s past, about broken boys and vicious wolves, and about girls lost in the woods—frightened, but not alone.

“Be Not Far From Me” by Mindy McGinnis

Hatchet meets Wild in this harrowing YA survival story about a teenage girl’s attempt to endure the impossible, from the Edgar Award-winning author of “The Female of the Species,” Mindy McGinnis.

The world is not tame. Ashley knows this truth deep in her bones, more at home with trees overhead than a roof. So when she goes hiking in the Smokies with her friends for a night of partying, the falling dark and creaking trees are second nature to her. But people are not tame either. And when Ashley catches her boyfriend with another girl, drunken rage sends her running into the night, stopped only by a nasty fall into a ravine. Morning brings the realization that she’s alone—and far off trail. Lost in undisturbed forest and with nothing but the clothes on her back, Ashley must figure out how to survive with the red streak of infection creeping up her leg.

“Cloak of Night” by Evelyn Skye

The stunning sequel to “Circle of Shadows” from Evelyn Skye, the New York Times bestselling author of the Crown’s Game series.

After the devastating Ceremony of Two Hundred Hearts, Sora, Daemon, Fairy, and Broomstick are truly alone in the fight to save their kingdom. Empress Aki is missing, and everyone else who could help them is a prisoner to Prince Gin’s mind control. The four face dangerous obstacles at every turn, but the greatest challenge may be discovering who they truly are and what, if anything, they are capable of. Full of dangerous action, heartbreaking romance, and incredible magic, “Cloak of Night” is the exciting end to this thrilling duology.
