Author Event: Karen McManus in conversation with Sara Farizan
Saturday April 04 | 6:00PM - 8:00PM
Karen McManus, New York Times Bestselling Author of One of Us is Lying, will be at our store! One of Us is Lying has been on the New York Times Bestseller list for 2 years straight!
We cannot emphasize enough what a big deal it is to have Karen McManus in our store for conversation with one of our favorite local authors, Sara Farizan, author of Here to Stay! Karen's newest book, One of Us is Next, the highly-anticipated sequel to One of Us is Lying, has already hit number one on the NYT Bestseller List.
A ton of copycat gossip apps have popped up since Simon died, but in the year since the Bayview four were cleared of his shocking death, no one’s been able to fill the gossip void quite like he could. The problem is no one has the facts.
This time it’s not an app, though—it’s a game.
Truth or Dare.
This is another twisty, fun young adult read! We can't wait to welcome Karen in and learn more!
Sara Farizan is the author of the wonderful books Here to Stay, Tell Me Again How a Crush Should Feel, and If You Could Be Mine. Here to Stay is a painfully honest, funny, authentic story about growing up, speaking out, and fighting prejudice.
What happens when a kid who’s flown under the radar for most of high school gets pulled off the bench to make the winning basket in a varsity playoff game?
If his name is Bijan Majidi, life is suddenly high fives in the hallways and invitations to exclusive parties—along with an anonymous photo sent by a school cyberbully that makes Bijan look like a terrorist.
The administration says they’ll find and punish the culprit. Bijan wants to pretend it never happened. He’s not ashamed of his Middle Eastern heritage; he just doesn’t want to be a poster child for Islamophobia. Lots of classmates rally around Bijan. Others make it clear they don’t want him or anybody who looks like him at their school. But it’s not always easy to tell your enemies from your friends.
We are always excited to welcome Sara to the store and look forward to this conversation between two fantastic writers!
