AADL is partnering with Nicola's Books to bring you the 2019 Fierce Reads Tour. This is your opportunity to meet four fabulous YA authors – Sara Faring, L.L. McKinney, Margaret Owen, and Katy Rose Pool.

  • Sara Faring / THE TENTH GIRLSimmering in Patagonian myth, The Tenth Girl is a gothic psychological thriller with a haunting twist you will not see coming. It's a buzz-worthy read inspired by the author's own family history.
  • L.L. McKinney / A DREAM SO DARKAuthor L.L. McKinney is back with the follow up to A Blade So Black, last year's breakout YA fantasy which received praise from Angie Thomas, NPR, Entertainment Weekly, and many more. This is an gripping, urban fantasy retelling of Alice in Wonderland, starring a black Alice.
  • Margaret Owen / THE MERCIFUL CROWMargaret's debut follows a mercy killer who must use her wits and bone magic to smuggle the crown prince to safety. An Indies Introduce selection with praise from Claire Legrand, Emily A. Duncan, and more, this one can't be missed!
  • Katy Rose Pool / THERE WILL COME A DARKNESS: Leigh Bardugo's Six of Crows meets Kristin Cashore's Graceling, with a dash of Winter is Coming, in this show-stopping debut YA fantasy! With high-stakes odds, forbidden romance, and a killer cast of characters, THERE WILL COME A DARKNESS is a debut to-watch.

This event takes place at Nicola's Books in the Westgate Shopping Center, 2513 Jackson Avenue and includes a signing with books for sale.
