JACQUELINE KELLY - Curious World of Calpurnia Tate (Tuesday, July 7 at 7pm)
Tuesday, July 8 at 7PM

Newberry Winner & Austin Author Jacqueline Kelly speaking & signing The Curious World of Calpurnia Tate

Callie Vee, Travis, Granddaddy, and the whole Tate clan are back in this charming follow-up to Newbery Honor-winner "The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate." Travis keeps bringing home strays. And Callie has her hands full keeping the wild animals-her brother included-away from her mother's critical eye. Whether it's wrangling a rogue armadillo or stray dog, a guileless younger brother or standoffish cousin, the trials and tribulations of Callie Vee will have readers laughing and crying and cheering for this most endearing heroine.

ABOUT Jacqueline Kelly

Jacqueline Kelly won the Newbery Honor for her first book, The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate. She was born in New Zealand and raised in Canada, in the dense rainforests of Vancouver Island. Her family then moved to El Paso, Texas, and Kelly attended college in El Paso, then went on to medical school in Galveston. After practicing medicine for many years, she went to law school at the University of Texas, and after several years of law practice, realized she wanted to write fiction. Her first story was published in the Mississippi Review in 2001. She now makes her home with her husband and various cats and dogs in Austin and Fentress, Texas. Can't make it to the event?

We're closing early at 8PM tonight so that we can say farewell to 2014 and celebrate the arrival of 2015. Ah, time, she comes and goes. We must raise a glass to prove that we're paying attention.

We'll be open bright and early at 11AM New Year's Day for our annual Customer Appreciation Day Sale when (almost) everything in the store will be 20% off! Forgive us if we're bleary eyed; we'll be quite happy to see you.

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
