Lauren Tarshis & Alan Gratz

 


Hosted by BookPeople in Austin, this virtual event is occurring in one week on Tuesday, September 7 at 6:00pm CT. Click here to RSVP!

At this event, Tarshis will be celebrating the release of the Texas-set and 21st installment in her beloved I Survived series – I SURVIVED: THE GALVESTON HURRICANE, 1900. More than a century later, the Galveston Hurricane of 1900 is still America's deadliest disaster. Lauren Tarshis’ story of one child surviving the horrible event churns with page-turning action and bold hope.

In conversation with Tarshis will be Alan Gratz, author of REFUGEE and GROUND ZERO. Gratz and Tarshis will have fascinating in-depth discussions about their new books, as well as the recent graphic novel adaptation of I SURVIVED: THE ATTACKS OF SEPTEMBER 11, 2001. The duo will also talk about turning history into fiction, the twentieth anniversary of 9/11, their creative processes, answer audience questions, and much more!

About I’m Sorry

In this fourth book in the series from New York Times bestselling author Michael Ian Black and celebrated illustrator Debbie Ridpath Ohi, a flamingo and a very sorry potato learn how to mend hurt feelings. Flamingo is upset. Very upset. Potato is sorry. Very sorry. In fact, he is the sorriest. But he doesn’t know how to tell Flamingo. He would rather run away to the South Pole and live with penguins. He’d rather wear a disguise for the rest of time. But will that be enough to fix their friendship? Will they ever go back to being a girl, a potato, and a flamingo again?
