The Royal Treatment: YA Author Panel Event

Thursday, October 22, 2020, 7:00pm

"Honey, you should see me in a crown­."- Moriarty

Everyone wants to rule the world. Some people are born royal, others marry into it, and some take the crown by force. The crown has always been something many characters have fought to take or keep. Battles, deception, and intrigue are often found in the pages of books with royals in it. It's easy to see why the YA genre is full of books about royalty, kingdoms, and epic adventures. Join us as we talk to three authors who write books about royals that aren’t afraid to fight for what is theirs and protect their kingdoms at all costs. Moderated by Kayleigh Platz with guest authors: C.J. Redwine, The Ravenspire Series; Nicki Pau Preto, Crown of Feathers Trilogy; and Aleksandra Ross, Don’t Call The Wolf. Q&A to follow, so please come prepared with some questions.

If you are interested in ordering one of the author’s books please visit The Bookshelf's website.

This program is virtual and is delivered through Zoom and on Facebook Live. You only need to register once per viewing device.

C.J. Redwine is a New York Times bestselling author of YA fantasy novels, including the Ravenspire series of fairytale retellings and the Defiance trilogy. She’s still waiting for her letter from Hogwarts. Currently, she lives in Nashville with her husband, five children, three pets, and a wardrobe that stubbornly refuses to lead to Narnia, no matter how many times she tries.

Nicki Pau Preto is a graphic designer and YA author living just outside Toronto, Canada. Her favorite stories have always been the ones that take her somewhere new, with characters she can love and worlds she can get lost in. Like all starving artists, she considers bargain shopping a competitive sport and Froot Loops a suitable meal replacement.

Aleksandra Ross' earliest memories include sitting on the couch and listening to her grandmother read the Polish folktales of her childhood. She grew up in Vancouver, BC, and went to medical school at the University of Alberta. Don’t Call the Wolf is her first novel.
