Angie Thomas: Nic Blake and the Remarkables
6PM TUESDAY, APRIL 11
This event is free and open to the public. No registration required.
Internationally bestselling superstar author Angie Thomas (The Hate U Give, On the Come Up, Concrete Rose) makes her middle-grade debut with Nic Blake And The Remarkables: The Manifestor Prophecy, with the launch of an inventive, hilarious, and suspenseful new contemporary fantasy trilogy inspired by African American history and folklore. She'll be in person discussing Nic Blake, and we'll have the Harper Collins Book Truck in person at our Tempe location.
ABOUT THE BOOK
It’s not easy being a Remarkable in the Unremarkable world. Some things are cool—like getting a pet hellhound for your twelfth birthday. Others, not so much—like not being trusted to learn magic because you might use it to take revenge on an annoying neighbor.
All Nic Blake wants is to be a powerful Manifestor like her dad. But before she has a chance to convince him to teach her the gift, a series of shocking revelations and terrifying events launch Nic and two friends on a hunt for a powerful magic tool she’s never heard of...to save her father from imprisonment for a crime she refuses to believe he committed.
