Kick off the Year with Patrick Jones and Lisa McMann

Not cold enough for you?  Come hear some chilling paranormal tales at the Loft!

For our next installment of the youth and teen reading series, we're proud to have Patrick Jones and New York Times bestselling novelist Lisa McMann.

When:  Saturday, January 9th at 7 PM
Where:  The Loft, The Open Book building at 1011 Washington Ave. S.

And, in case you need some bolstering after the reading, we'll have snacks before you head back out in the Minnesota winter.

More info about our readers and their books.

Check out Lisa's Trailer:

Lisa McMann is the New York Times bestselling author of Wake and Fade and her upcoming novel, Gone, is the third in her Wake trilogy.  She grew up in Michigan and now lives in the Phoenix area with her husband and two kids. You can friend her or tweet at her.

And equally tantalizing is Patrick's:

 Patrick Jones is the author of six novels for teens, most recently the supernatural tome The Tear Collector.  His 2007 novel Chasing Tail Lights was a finalist for the Minnesota Book Award. A former librarian for teenagers, Jones received lifetime achievement awards from the American Library Association and the Catholic Library in 2006.   While he lives in Minneapolis, he still considers Flint, Michigan his hometown.  

Hope you can make it!

    Thanks for sharing, Swati!
