Are We There Yet_ We are excited to be bringing Caldecott-Award winning illustrator and author Dan Santat to the Upstate on April 14, 2016, for his new picture book Are We There Yet? so save the date! Dan won the Caldecott for the Adventures of Beekle and is also known as the illustrator for the Ricky Ricotta books by Dav Pilkey. 

We need your help, though, to help finalize the event. We are still looking for one more elementary school wanting to host him that afternoon. If your school would be interested, please just reply and let me know so I can send you the requirements for the event. 
 
We will also have a public event with him that evening, either at the store or another venue. If you know of a venue with A/V capabilities that would be interested in partnering with us, let us know that as well.

Thursdays with the Crown
Castle Glower has been acting weird, so it's no surprise when two towers transport Celie and her siblings to an unknown land. When they realize that no one from home is coming to get them, the kids -- along with Celie's pet griffin Rufus -- set out through the forest to figure out where they are and what's happened to their beloved Castle. Instead, they discover two wizards and an entire lost people, the oldest inhabitants of Castle Glower. And it seems they may know more of the Castle's secrets than Celie. But do they know how to get her back home? This bestselling series continues with the story of the origin of Castle Glower.

Thursdays with the Crown
Emma's ancestors include Revolutionary War spies, brilliant scientists, and famous musicians -- every single one of which learned of their extraordinary destiny through a dream. Right before her mother died, Emma promised that she'd do whatever it took to fulfill her destiny, and she doesn't want to let her mother down. But when Emma's dream finally arrives, it points her toward an impossible task -- finding a legendary treasure hidden in her town's cemetery. If Emma fails, she'll let down generations of extraordinary ancestors...including her own mother. But how can she find something that's been missing for centuries and might be protected by a mysterious singing ghost?
