Lauren Oliver in conversation with Jandy Nelson

Thursday, October 2, 7:00 p.m.

Two great talents with fabulous new books come together for this one-off powerhouse conversation.

Rooms Lauren Oliver, the New York Times bestselling author of Before I Fall and the Delirium trilogy makes her brilliant adult debut with this mesmerizing story in the tradition of The Lovely Bones, Her Fearful Symmetry, and The Ocean at the End of the Lane—a tale of family, ghosts, secrets, and mystery, in which the lives of the living and the dead intersect in shocking, surprising, and moving ways.

“A chilling ghost story, and much, much more: Rooms is a magnificent gothic fugue on the themes of longing and buried secrets.”-Lev Grossman, bestselling author of The Magicians Trilogy

I'll Give You the Sun Jandy Nelson, the acclaimed, award-winning author of The Sky Is Everywhere delivers a radiant novel of first love, family, loss, and betrayal that will leave you breathless and teary and laughing—often all at once.

Hicklebee's, Friday, October 3 at 7pm
Hicklebee's Teen Advisory Board (TAB) presents three amazing authors Friday, October 3 @ 7:00

Jandy Nelson Jandy Nelson, like her characters in I’LL GIVE YOU THE SUN, comes from a superstitious lot. She was tutored from a young age in the art of the four-leaf clover hunt; she knocks wood, throws salt, and carries charms in her pockets. Currently a full-time writer, Jandy lives and writes in San Francisco, California—not far from the settings of her books. Stephanie Kuehn Stephanie Kuehn holds degrees in linguistics and sport psychology, and is currently working toward a doctorate in clinical psychology. Complicit is her newest novel. She lives in Northern California with her husband, their three children, and a joyful abundance of pets. When she’s not writing, she’s running. Or reading. Or dreaming.
