Attend a Children's Superhero Party and Book Signing with Greenville, SC Native Kristy Dempsey, Author of The Superhero Instruction Manual



Come meet South Carolina native and children's author Kristy Dempsey and learn about being a superhero with her new picture book, Superhero Instruction Manual (Alfred A. Knopf, hardcover, $16.99), at Fiction Addiction's Superhero Party on Saturday, August 13th, from Noon-2pm. Bring your kids for a superhero storytime with the author, get your books signed, and have some superhero-themed refreshments. And if you (or your child) dress up as a superhero, get 10% off any merchandise purchased at the event! This event is free and open to the public.


Superhero Instruction ManualAnyone can be a superhero, and this guidebook will show you how! Just follow six easy steps, and you'll be saving the world in no time.


Join an aspiring hero as he selects a secret identity, chooses a power, and much, much more.


But be warned: it isn't easy being super. And sometimes the greatest acts of heroism need a helping hand to get off the ground.
