E.D. Baker - The Fairy-Tale Matchmaker, Annie Barrows - Magic in the Mix, and Jessica Day George - Thursday with the Crown — at Takoma Park Library (MD)
Politics and Prose, Thursday, October 9 at 7:30pm
Magic is in the air with these three novels from accomplished writers of elementary fiction. E.D. Baker, the author of the ever-popular The Frog Princess, has written a quirky tale about a fairy who doesn’t want to collect teeth anymore, but has a magical knack for matchmaking. Annie Barrows has produced a thrilling sequel to her The Magic Half, in which Miri and her (not exactly) twin Molly time travel via their magic house. And Jessica Day George follows Tuesdays in the Castle and Wednesdays in the Tower with a third in the series about the mischievous room-swapping castle that keeps its inhabitants on their toes.

Jessica Day George | Thursday with the Crown
The King's English Bookshop, Monday, October 6 at 7pm
Join local and New York Times bestselling author, Jessica Day George, for a reading and signing of her new middle grade novel, Thursdays with the Crown.

Castle Glower has been acting weird, so it’s no surprise when two towers transport Celie and her siblings to an unknown land. When they realize that no one from home is coming to get them, the kids—along with Celie’s pet griffin Rufus—set out through the forest to figure out where they are and what’s happened to their beloved Castle. Instead, they discover two wizards and an entire lost people, the oldest inhabitants of Castle Glower. And it seems they may know more of the Castle’s secrets than Celie. But do they know how to get her back home?

Jessica Day George author of Thursdays with the Crown Author Talk & Book Signing Thursday, October 16, 2014 at 6:30p.m. Delafield Public Library 500 Genesee St, Delafield, WI 53018 The beloved moving castle and its young, royal inhabitants return in Thursdays with the Crown, the third book in Jessica Day George’s bestselling series! Castle Glower has been acting very weird, so it’s no surprise when two towers transport Celie and her siblings to an unknown land. When they realize that no one from home is coming to get them, the kids – along with Celie’s pet griffin Rufus – set off through the immense forest to figure out where they are and what’s happened to their beloved Castle. Instead, they discover an entire lost people, the oldest inhabitants of Castle Glower. And it seems they may know even more of the Castle’s secrets than Celie. But do they know how to get her and her band back home? This modern fairy tale with a classic feeling—with shades of Hogwarts’s “Room of Requirement”—is sure to delight readers of all ages. Readers who’ve been enchanted by the Castle’s moving walls will be delighted to learn the Castle’s rich and magical history. Jessica Day George is the author of Tuesdays at the Castle and New York Times bestseller Wednesdays in the Tower, as well as the Twelve Dancing Princesses series and Dragon Slippers series. Originally from Idaho, she studied at Brigham Young University and has been a movie store clerk, a bookseller, and a school office lady before becoming a writer. Jessica lives in Salt Lake City, Utah, with her husband, their three young children, and a five-pound Maltese named Pippin who often makes cameo appearances in her books.
