Yes, you can find information on all our events on our store calendar. But we want to make sure our younger patrons (and their parents) don't miss out on something special. Here, you'll find a list of events especially geared to kids of all ages. Events are updated frequently, so check back often!
SATURDAY, MAY 19, 10:30AM - STORY TIME WITH ELEPHANT & PIGGIE
Elephant and Piggie Present The Itchy Book by LeUyen Pham at our Saturday story time. Join us for photo ops and your favorite Elephant & Piggie books.
SATURDAY, JUNE 2, 3PM - TEEN ADVISORY BOARD BOOK CLUB BASH
You don't have to be in a book club to come to our inaugural Teen Advisory Board Book Club Bash, but if you are in one, you won't want to miss out on QRB TAB members recommending their favorite young adult and adult titles for your book clubs to discuss. There will be treats to enjoy, giveaways, and guaranteed fun. Come early, Bash always draws a crowd. Intended for readers age 12 through adult.
WEDNESDAY, JUNE 27, 6:30PM - DARREN FARRELL
From Avenue A to Zoo Z, there's always something to spot and see in Letter Town. Darren Farrell joins us to share Letter Town: A Seek-and-Find Alphabet Adventure. Children will enjoy the rhyming tale and color illustrations, with scenes similar to Richard Scarry's busy books on every page. We recommend this book for ages 3+.
SATURDAY, JULY 21, 7PM - SCOTT REINTGEN - SIGNING LINE TICKET EVENT
From Scott Reintgen, a favorite local author, comes the second book in the Nyxia Triad series, a science fiction young adult trilogy called "a high-octane thriller" by Marie Lu. Emmett and the Genesis spaceship survivors from Nyxia continue to fight for their lives as they are caught between the powerful forces of Babel and the Adamites. We recommend this book for ages 12+.
WEDNESDAY, JULY 25, 7PM - NC MIDDLE GRADE AUTHOR PANEL
We are excited to welcome three local middle grade authors for a fun panel. These three new books by North Carolina authors explore friendship and family, feature kids flying and eating flying bugs, and discover what in life is worth fighting for. This panel of middle grade novelists will be moderated by local young adult author, Brenda Rufener. We recommend these books for ages 8+. Cindy Baldwin will present Where Watermelons Grow. Rebecca Petruck will present Boy Bites Bug. A.M. Morgan will present The Inventors at No. 8.
SATURDAY, AUGUST 4, 2PM - TRACY BANGHART
In a world where women have no rights, sisters Serina and Nomi Tessaro face two very different fates: one trapped as a perfect Grace in a beautiful palace, the other fighting to the death in a volcanic island prison. Intrigue and romance abound in this new fantasy from Tracy Banghart: Grace and Fury. We recommend this book for ages 13 and older.
THURSDAY, AUGUST 23, 7PM - KATI GARDNER
It's release party time! Join us to celebrate local author, Kati Gardner's debut young adult novel. Spoiler alert: No one with cancer dies in this story. They do play Uno, shave their head, get stabbed, make new friends, enjoy glitter, attend camp, get kissed (!), and above all else, discover they are brave enough to continue living life. As a result maybe, just maybe, Casen Martin, teen and formerly the youngest dancer at the Atlanta Ballet Conservatory before the big C happened, believes she might dance again.
Narrated by Feyre and Rhysand, this bridges the events in A Court of Wings and Ruin and the upcoming novels in the series.
New in the #1 New York Times bestselling Court of Thorns and Roses series, A Court of Frost and Starlight is a glimpse into the lives of Feyre and Rhys as they begin to recover from the war that changed their world.
