Austin Teen Book Fest announces: Kresley Cole and Libba Bray! Houston Instagrammers Meet-Up June 27 @ 10:04 am
Two new authors added to the line-up for Austin Teen Book Festival!
Kresley Cole is the author of numerous Best-Selling titles for Adults and Young Adults. The Poison Princess summary on Amazon.com reads:
Sixteen year old Evangeline “Evie” Greene leads a charmed life, until she begins experiencing horrifying hallucinations. When an apocalyptic event decimates her Louisiana hometown, Evie realizes her hallucinations were actually visions of the future—and they’re still happening. Fighting for her life and desperate for answers, she must turn to her wrong-side-of-the-bayou classmate: Jack Deveaux.
But she can’t do either alone.
With his mile-long rap sheet, wicked grin, and bad attitude, Jack is like no boy Evie has ever known. Even though he once scorned her and everything she represented, he agrees to protect Evie on her quest. She knows she can’t totally depend on Jack. If he ever cast that wicked grin her way, could she possibly resist him?
The first three chapters of the book are available as a free preview on the author's website. (follow the link above).
Libba Bray is the acclaimed author of Beauty Queens and Going Bovine will be representing her upcoming title The Diviners. The summary of the book on Amazon.com is; Evie O'Neill has been exiled from her boring old hometown and shipped off to the bustling streets of New York City--and she is pos-i-toot-ly thrilled. New York is the city of speakeasies, shopping, and movie palaces! Soon enough, Evie is running with glamorous Ziegfield girls and rakish pickpockets. The only catch is Evie has to live with her Uncle Will, curator of The Museum of American Folklore, Superstition, and the Occult--also known as "The Museum of the Creepy Crawlies."
Join the group Instagramhtx for a group meeting at La Carafe in Downtown Houston on Wednesday, June 27th. This event will be more of a meet-up than a photo walk. Time and details will be announced later this month. If you haven't been there before, it's a fantastic. Here's a bit of information pulled from owlnet.rice.edu website: "The La Carafe building is listed on the National Register for Historic Places and is believed to be the oldest bar in Houston, and is the oldest commercial building still in use, in Houston. Built by developer Nathaniel Kellum in 1847, the La Carafe building has remained a two-story public venue since it's construction.
