Ellen Hopkins
Blue Willow Bookshop, Tuesday, September 30 at 7pm
What: Ellen Hopkins will discuss and sign Rumble, her newest novel for young adults. When: Tuesday, September 30, 7:00 pm Where: Blue Willow Bookshop, 14532 Memorial Drive, Houston, Texas, 77079 Admission: In order to go through the signing line and meet Ellen Hopkins, please purchase Rumble from Blue Willow Bookshop. At the time of your purchase, we will issue a signing line ticket that indicates your place in line. Your book and signing line ticket can be picked up at the event. About the Author: Ellen Hopkins is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of many books for teens, including CRANK, IMPULSE, and TILT, as well as the adult novels TRIANGLES and COLLATERAL. She lives with her family in Carson City, Nevada, where she has founded Ventana Sierra, a nonprofit youth housing and resource initiative. Visit her at EllenHopkins.com and on Facebook, and follow her on Twitter at @EllenHopkinsYA. For more information on Ventana Sierra, go to VentanaSierra.org. Book: Matthew Turner doesn't have faith in anything. Not in family--his is a shambles after his younger brother was bullied into suicide; not in so-called friends who turn their backs when things get tough; not in some all-powerful creator who lets too much bad stuff happen; and certainly not in some "It Gets Better" psychobabble. No matter what his girlfriend, Hayden, says about faith and forgiveness, there's no way Matt's letting go of blame. He's decided to "live large and go out with a huge bang," and whatever happens happens. But when a horrific event plunges Matt into a dark, silent place, he hears a Rumble...a Rumble that wakes him up, calling everything he's ever disbelieved into question. Ordering: A limited number of autographed copies of Ellen’s book will be available for purchase after the event. If you cannot attend the event, and would like a personalized copy of her book, please call us before the event at (281) 497-8675.
