7PM WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 22 Tween Event | Shannon Hale: Palace of Stone
Newbery Honor winner Shannon Hale presents Palace of Stone, the sequel to her bestselling young adult novel Princess Academy.
Coming down from the mountain to a new life in the city, and a chance to attend school at the Queen's castle, is a thrill to Miri. But as Miri befriends students who seem sophisticated and exciting, she also learns that they have some frightening plans. Torn between loyalty to the princess and her new friends' ideas, between an old love and a new crush, and between her small mountain home and the bustling city, Miri looks to find her own way in this new place.
