Fierce Feminist Story and Ice Cream!

Tears of Frost book cover

Let the frost creep in for our special book launch with Bree Barton, author of Tears of Frost! Once you arrive at the ice cream shop at 7pm on November 5th, you will be given your mission, including secret instructions for a book-themed scavenger hunt. Wear shoes you can walk in and bring your adventurous spirit, because you're going to the mystical snow kingdom. If you survive the hunt, you'll win ice cream, prizes, and so much more. Bree will be available to sign books... and you just might catch a glimpse of your very own Northern Lights. It's going to be fun! 

Help us welcome her new book into the world with a side of ice...cream! After the hunt, Bree will be available to sign books.

About the Book: This captivating second book in Bree Barton's Heart of Thorns trilogy deftly explores the effects of power in a dark magical kingdom--and the fierce courage it takes to claim your body as your own. This feminist teen fantasy is perfect for fans of Sarah J. Maas and Leigh Bardugo.

Mia Rose is back from the dead. Her memories are hazy, her body numb--but she won't stop searching. Her only hope to save the boy she loves and the sister who destroyed her is to find the mother she can never forgive. 

After her mother's betrayal, Pilar is on a hunt of her own--to seek out the only person who can exact revenge. All goes according to plan until she collides with Prince Quin, the boy whose sister she killed.

As Mia, Pilar, and Quin forge dangerous new alliances, they are bewitched by the snow kingdom's promise of freedom...but nothing is as it seems under the kingdom's glimmering ice.

Welcome to Doodleville, everyone!!! This beloved author, Chad Sell, brings us to his next fabulous graphic novel, Doodleville, which grabs the reader, heart and soul!! Doodleville brings us into a normal school, to a normal group of kids, in a normal art club.....except that these kids' doodles come alive!!! Drew loves her doodles dearly, but when one of her doodles goes rogue and hurts the other student's characters, she is wisked away on an adventure that teaches her so much: the complexities of friendship, the strength that lies in trusting yourself, and the power of working together with friends that can save the day!! Chad Sell's trademark combo of fun, vibrant artwork and deeply emotional and human storytelling makes you smile throughout, and reminds you that "being different can make you powerful." Sell's work is also a perfect example of representation as it should be: people of all types existing together, just like in real life. And while having a blast visiting Doodleville, you may even learn a bit of art history! No matter what, you'll surely be smiling till the very last page.
