Books & Company, Tuesday, September 23, 2014 at 6:30pm
Stuart Gibbs & William Alexander Stuart Gibbs, author of Space Case William Alexander, author of Ambassador Book Release Party, Author Talk, and Book Signing Tuesday, September 23 at 6:30p.m. Oconomowoc Public Library School visits during the day Ambassador: Gabe Fuentes is reading one summer night when he is interrupted by a creature who looks like a purple sock puppet. The sock puppet introduces himself as the Envoy and asks if Gabe wants to be Earth’s Ambassador to the galaxy. What sane eleven-year-old could refuse? Some ingenious tinkering with the washing machine sends Gabe out to the center of the galaxy. There he finds that Earth is in the path of a destructive alien force—and Gabe himself is the target of an assassination plot. Back home, Gabe discovers that his undocumented parents are in danger of being deported. Can Gabe survive long enough to solve two sets of “alien” problems? He runs for his life, through Minneapolis and outer space, in this fast-paced adventure from a National Book Award–winning author. Space Case: Like his fellow lunarnauts—otherwise known as Moonies—living on Moon Base Alpha, twelve-year-old Dashiell Gibson is famous the world over for being one of the first humans to live on the moon. And he’s bored out of his mind. Kids aren’t allowed on the lunar surface, meaning they’re trapped inside the tiny moon base with next to nothing to occupy their time. Then Moon Base Alpha’s top scientist turns up dead. Dash senses there’s foul play afoot, but no one believes him. But Dr. Holtz was on the verge of an important new discovery, Dash finds out, and it’s a secret that could change everything for the Moonies—a secret someone just might kill to keep...

Wild Rumpus Books for Young Readers, Saturday, March 16, 2013 at 1pm
Spike (the Wise Lizard) and Thomas Jefferson (the tarantula) are two of the most reclusive and private Rumpus residents. Yet when William Alexander, author and MCAD professor, came to Wild Rumpus last year, they each crept from under their logs and listened with respect and admiration as he spoke about his book Goblin Secrets.
As you can imagine, Spike and Thomas Jefferson were overjoyed (though you have to know them well to tell) when they heard that Goblin Secrets won the 2012 National Book Award. And now, with the upcoming release of Ghoulish Song, the companion book to Goblin Secrets, Spike and Thomas are skittering with excitement.
Join us on Saturday, March 16 at 1PM to celebrate the release of National Book Award Winner William Alexander's second book, Ghoulish Song. Get the low-down on the National Book Awards and walking the red carpet, listen to a reading, ask questions, get answers, and maybe even hear some awful, awful songs. If you're lucky.
