Don't Miss Carrie Ryan on Monday March 22 at 7:00

Just wanted to remind you that the wonderful Carrie Ryan will be at Keplers's on Monday, March 22, at 7:00 p.m.

I loved The Forest of Hands and Teeth (for review see here) and think I liked The Dead-Tossed Waves even better (review to come very soon!) So I am bubbling over with excitement at the thought of hearing Carrie talking about her books.

Hope to see you there. (Will post photos and info about the event later in the week for those of you who can't make it.)

And here's the back cover copy to whet your appetitie: Gabry lives a quiet life. As safe a life as is possible in a town trapped between a forest and the ocean, in a world teeming with the dead, who constantly hunger for those still living. She’s content on her side of the Barrier, happy to let her friends dream of the Dark City up the coast while she watches from the top of her lighthouse. But there are threats the Barrier cannot hold back. Threats like the secrets Gabry’s mother thought she left behind when she escaped from the Sisterhood and the Forest of Hands and Teeth. Like the cult of religious zealots who worship the dead. Like the stranger from the forest who seems to know Gabry. And suddenly, everything is changing. One reckless moment, and half of Gabry’s generation is dead, the other half imprisoned. Now Gabry only knows one thing: she must face the forest of her mother’s past in order to save herself and the one she loves.
