July/August 2015

 

Children's publishing slows down a bit in the summer so this is a combined newsletter for our picks for July and August releases. 

We're excited to announce that we will be bringing Eric Litwin back to Greenville on September 25th at 6:30pm for a free performance sponsored by USC Upstate at University Center Greenville. So please save the date!

Librarians, teens, and adult mystery fans make sure to join us on Saturday for Upstate author Carrie Adams' launch party at Thomas Creek Brewery.

Ruthless
Launch Party with Carolyn Lee Adams: Saturday, July 18th, 6-8pm @ Thomas Creek Brewery, FREE

Upstate South Carolina comedienne and author Carolyn Lee Adams will be celebrating the launch of her debut young adult thriller, Ruthless (Simon & Schuster, hardcover, $17.99), at Thomas Creek Brewery. This is a spine-tingling debut about the ultimate game of cat-and-mouse in reverse as a teen equestrienne struggles to retain hope -- and her sanity -- while on the run from a cunning and determined killer. This event is free and open to the public, and refreshments will be served.

Staff Picks
Ruthless
A harrowing survival thriller set in the Blue Ridge Mountains about a teenage equestrienne kidnapped by a serial killer who must dig down deep to find the will to first survive, then triumph. You won't be able to put this one down!

Seconded by Nancy, store volunteer.

Meet the author at her Launch Party on July 18th!

Ruthless
Some things in life are pretty scary. Monsters. Ghosts. Witches. The boy in this story makes a list and shares them with his dog, who isn't convinced that any of them are actually scary...except the dark (which is really scary, admit it!). A funny book to share with kids too scared to go to bed, that may offer some comfort in addition to the laughs.
