The iLoveMG tour is coming to Milwaukee. Featured is Kelly Barnhill, whose new multi-layered saga offers the same mix of fantasy elements, epic adventure, and gorgeous prose that made "The Witch's Boy" such a success, along with Brian Farrey, author of the Vengekeep Prophecies series, whose newest is a spooky, thrilling saga about a Utopian society with a dark secret. Both are perfect for kids 8-12, and yes, well have black forest and magic moon (vanilla) cupcakes from our friend Miss Cupcake in Shorewood. |
Here's more about "The Girl who Drank the Moon." Every year, the people of the Protectorate leave a baby as an offering to the witch who lives in the forest. They hope this sacrifice will keep her from terrorizing their town. But the witch in the Forest, Xan, is kind, and rescues the children, delivering them to welcoming families on the other side of the forest, nourishing the babies with starlight on the journey. But after she feeds the baby Luna moonlight instead of starlight, the potentially dangerous consequences of her mistake emerge as the young girl turns 13, and it does not help matters that a young man from the Protectorate is intent on killing the witch.
In "The Secret of Dreadwillow Carse," a princess and a peasant girl embark on a dangerous quest to outwit a warning foretelling the fall of the Monarchy. In the center of the verdant Monarchy lies Dreadwillow Carse, a desolate bog the people of the land do their best to ignore. Little is known about it except an ominous warning: "If any monarch enters Dreadwillow Carse, then the Monarchy will fall." So after Princess Jeniah and Aon make a deal to help each other and Aon goes missing, Jeniah must risk it all to find her friend. In this thrilling modern fairytale, Brian Farrey has created an exciting new world where friendship is more powerful than fate and the most important thing is to question everything.
Registration for this event is requested but not required. We'd like to make sure we have enough cupcakes!
