About the Authors: Robin Benway is the acclaimed author of ALSO KNOWN AS; THE EXTRAORDINARY SECRETS OF APRIL, MAY & JUNE; and AUDREY, WAIT!, a 2009 ALA Best Book for Young Adults and a BCCB Blue Ribbon winner, among other honors. Benway's books have been published in over 15 languages, have won awards abroad, and have become bestsellers in several countries. Formerly a bookseller and book publicist, she lives in Los Angeles. Visit her online at www.robinbenway.com. Megan Miranda is the author of FRACTURE and HYSTERIA. She spends a great deal of time thinking about the “why” and “how” of things, which leads her to get carried away daydreaming about the “what-ifs.” She lives in North Carolina with her husband and two young children. Visit her online at www.meganmiranda.com. Books: Going Rogue Mysterious, enjoyable, and laugh-out-loud funny, Robin Benway’s ALSO KNOWN AS inspired a new generation of arm chair spies with 16-year-old spy and safecracker, Maggie Silver, as she experienced high school for the first time — with an insanely cool best friend, cute boyfriend, and frustratingly simple locker combinations. Now, Robin Benway is back with the exciting sequel, Going Rogue that is as full of adventure as the first book in the series. Now settled into the high school scene, Maggie’s life is still nothing close to normal with her family connected to a spy organization. After risking her life and the lives of her friend Roux and former-mark-turned-boyfriend Jesse, Maggie is on a new mission — to clear the names of her parents, who were falsely accused of stealing priceless gold coins from their own agency. Full of secrets, adventure and danger, Going Rogue follows Maggie and her "new team" as they flee to Paris where they must come up with a plan to defeat their former allies. Vengeance In Vengeance, the sequel to FRACTURE, Megan Miranda returns with another riveting, atmospheric story that explores what happens after a tragedy occurs and mixes in a little paranormal that somehow just feels normal. Nobody really believes in a curse… until you know the people who disappear. Too much coincidence, you look for a reason. Too much death, you grasp for something to blame. Carson pulled Delaney out of Falcon Lake and he died on the side of the road with her mouth pressed to his. When Troy drowned, Delaney told the cops it was suicide. But Delaney believes the lake released her and grabbed another. So when Decker's father dies in a pool of spilled water on their kitchen floor, all Decker can feel is a slow burning rage. Because he knows that Delaney knew that his dad was going to die. She knew and backed out of his house and never said a word. Falcon Lake still has a hold on them both, and Decker can't forgive Delaney until he knows why. Told from Decker’s perspective, this alluring mystery will keep you up late reading to find out what is really going on in Falcon Lake.

In Benway's Going Rogue, Maggie is now settled into the high school scene, but her life is still nothing close to normal with her family connected to a spy organization. After risking her life, and the lives of her friend Roux and former-mark-turned-boyfriend Jesse, Maggie has a new mission. She must clear her parents' names after they have been falsely accused of stealing priceless gold coins from within their own agency.

HUDSON VALLEY YA SOCIETY - TRIPLE THREAT TOUR! Featuring Yelena Black, Megan Miranda & Robin Benway
Oblong Books & Music - Millerton, Sunday, March 3, 2013 at 4pm
This event will be held at Oblong Books & Music, 6422 Montgomery St., Rhinebeck, NY.
RSVP Required: RSVP via email or Facebook and share this event with your friends!
Pre-order signed books here!
YELENA BLACK is a recent MFA graduate of Columbia University. In "Dance of Shadows" Vanessa Adler isn't so sure she really belongs at the School of American Ballet. But dance runs in her family. It's been a part of her life for as long as she can remember. Her grandmother and mother were prima ballerinas, and her older sister Margaret was, too. That is, until Margaret mysteriously disappeared from school three years ago. The infamous choreographer, Josef, isn't just ruthless with his pupils, he guards a sinister secret, one in which the school's dancers-prized for their beauty, grace, and discipline-become pawns in a world of dark, deadly demons. Black currently resides in New York City and is a full-time writer. She has a keen interest in dance and all things devilish.
MEGAN MIRANDA was a scientist and high school teacher before writing her first novel "Fracture", which came out of her fascination with scientific mysteries—especially those associated with the brain. Megan has a BS in biology from MIT and spent her post-college years either rocking a lab coat or reading books. "Hysteria", due out February 5, is her second novel. Megan lives near Charlotte, North Carolina, where she volunteers as an MIT Educational Counselor.
In ROBIN BENWAY's forthcoming novel "Also Known As" (February 26, 2013), there are some drawbacks to being a 16-year old safecracker, daughter of spies, and member of a Robin Hood-esque organization that fights corruption. On the list: never getting to stay in one place long enough to have friends or a boyfriend, being the only spy ever to have a 10 p.m. curfew, and being sent on assignment to Russia. In the winter. For Maggie Silver, the major perk thus far has been the avoidance of high school, and the accompanying cliques, bad lunches, and frustratingly simple Masterlocks on the lockers(If it’s three digits or less, why even bother?).

TEENS: Triple Threat Tour: Not one, not two, but three incredible Y/A authors all at once in conversation at our Goral Gables store. YELENA BLACK holds an MFA in fiction from Columbia University. Dance of Shadows (Bloomsbury, $17.99) was inspired by her love of ballet. As a child, she studied dance and fell in love with the art form. Though she never pursued ballet professionally, choosing instead to study creative writing, her interest in performing—and in all things dark and spooky—have blended together in her paranormal debut, where she is able to do pirouettes vicariously through her characters
