AUTHOR TALK & BOOK SIGNING
Avi
Presented by The UCLA History Initiative
Royce Hall, Room 314
Thursday, February 19*
7:00 p.m., public invited, kids and adults
Please RSVP to jbellamy@history.ucla.edu

Join renowned author Avi for a very special evening, featuring an author talk, The Write Stuff: Avi Talks About New and Old Books, a Q & A session, refreshments and book signing.

Newbery Medalist Avi's new book, Catch You Later, Traitor, is the thrilling and suspenseful story of an ordinary American family who fall under suspicion. It's 1951, and twelve-year-old Pete Collison is a regular kid in Brooklyn, New York, who loves Sam Spade detective books and radio crime dramas. But when an FBI agent shows up at Pete's doorstep, accusing Pete's father of being a Communist, Pete is caught in a real-life mystery. Could there be Commies in Pete's family? As Pete follows the quickly accumulating clues, he begins to wonder if the truth could put his family's livelihood - and even their freedom - at risk. Catch You Late, Traitor tells a funny, insightful story packed with realistic period detail of a boy in mid-twentieth-century America whose family is caught in the wide net of America's Red Scare.

*Avi will also be doing a school visit on Tuesday, February 24, open to classes from multiple schools. Please contact Sharon at Children's Book World if you would like to bring a class.

Come dressed in your finest pirate garb and join local authors Annabeth Bondor-Stone and Connor White in celebrating the publication of Shivers!: The Pirate Who's Afraid of Everything! Meet Shivers, the scaredy-est pirate to ever sail the Seven Seas. Along with his best friend, Margo, and his loyal fishmate (yes, you read that correctly), Albee, Shivers battles a giant squid, discovers hidden treasures, and gets pooped on by a pigeon to save his parents from the clutches of evil. (Yep, that's right: evil!) You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll never eat snails again. So put on your pantaloons, batten down the hatches, and join Shivers on his first (but still very dangerous) adventure. Comic book-like illustrations in each chapter bring Shivers to life and invite even the most reluctant readers to join the adventure.

AUTHOR TALK & BOOK SIGNING
Kelly Light
Tuesday, March 10*
Ages 4 - 7
*Off site school event. Classes and individuals are invited to attend; please call for details

Kelly Light's Louise Loves Art is an irresistible story about the importance of creativity in all its forms. Louise loves art more than anything. She is determined to create a masterpiece-her pièce de résistance! Louise also loves Art, her little brother. The artwork covering every available surface of the house makes it clear that Louise's parents encourage her imagination, emphasizing the importance of nurturing inspiration and ambition in young artists. When Louise's younger brother, cleverly named Art, takes a pair of scissors to Louise's masterpiece and turns it into a creation of his own, Louise's initial shock and devastation will be familiar to all older siblings, but her quick change of heart reveals the double meaning of the title. Louise ultimately takes the support she's been shown and gives it to Art, hanging his "masterpiece" in the place of honor on the refrigerator, making this the perfect tale to encourage every artist, no matter how small.

Available for signing:

  • Louise Loves Art   $17.99
