Meet and Tweet with Laurie Halse Anderson
We are pleased to welcome Laurie Halse Anderson, award winning author of Speak and Chains, among others. Laurie will be in town to discuss and sign Forge, the sequel to Chains.
We're trying something new this time and will do a "Meet and Tweet" with Laurie, so fans can meet her in person as well as converse on Twitter. The conversation will use the hashtag #bluewillowforge, so you can easily follow us. If you would like to sign up for the Twitter conversation, you can click here.
In Forge, we shift perspective from Isabel to Curzon and brings to the page the tale of what it takes for runaway slaves to forge their own paths in a world of obstacles—and in the midst of the American Revolution.
The Patriot Army was shaped and strengthened by the desperate circumstances of the Valley Forge winter. This is where Curzon the boy becomes Curzon the young man. In addition to the hardships of soldiering, he lives with the fear of discovery, for he is an escaped slave passing for free. And then there is Isabel, who is also at Valley Forge—against her will. She and Curzon have to sort out the tangled threads of their friendship while figuring out what stands between the two of them and true freedom.
In order to go through the signing line and meet Laurie Halse Anderson for book personalization, you must purchase Forge from Blue Willow Bookshop. If you cannot attend the event, but would like a copy of Forge, please call us at (281) 497 8675.
