We work hard to bring events to our community for free, because connecting readers with authors is central to our mission. But these programs are not free for us to put on! If you’re interested in attending this event, we hope you’ll consider purchasing a copy of City of Spells from our bookshop. Your support is critical to keeping us here and offering events like this, and we hope to do that for many years to come!

About the Author:

Alexandra Christo decided to write books when she was four and her teacher told her she couldn't be a fairy. She is the author of To Kill a Kingdom and Into the Crooked Place. When she's not busy making up stories, she can be found organizing food crawls over London and binge-watching Korean dramas. Alexandra has a BA in Creative Writing and currently lives in England with an abundance of cacti (because they're the only plants she can keep alive).

About the conversational partner: 

Tricia Levenseller, author of Daughter of the Pirate King, is from a small town in Oregon, but she now lives next to the Rocky Mountains in Utah with her bossy dog, Rosy. She received her degree in English Language and Editing, and she is thrilled that she never has to read a textbook again. When she's not writing or reading, Tricia enjoys putting together jigsaw puzzles, playing volleyball, and watching her favorite TV shows while eating extra-buttered popcorn.

Ordering:

Payment type must be "CreditCard." Shipping will be charged if you want the book shipped to you. If you'd prefer to use our curbside pickup program, we ask that you please collect your book(s) within one month of the event date. After that date, your book will be donated to a Houston-based literacy organization.

International shipping will be $35.00.
