Meet Puzzlemaster and Bestselling Children's Author Trenton Lee Stewart



Join Fiction Addiction for mystery, riddles, and excitement at a FREE event celebrating the launch of the new children's novel, The Secret Keepers (Little, Brown & Co., hardcover, $18.99, on sale 9/27/16), by Trenton Lee Stewart, bestselling author of The Mysterious Benedict Society series, on Tuesday, September 27th, at 4:30pm at the Hughes Main Library in downtown Greenville (25 Heritage Green Place).


Trenton Lee Stewart will be visiting from his home in Arkansas to share the secret of how he comes up with the riddles, puzzles, and narrow escapes in his books. The Secret Keepers introduces Reuben, who soon embarks on a dangerous adventure full of curious characters, treacherous traps, and hairsbreadth escapes as he races to outwit and outmaneuver the sly villain called The Smoke and save his town from a terrible fate. On Reuben's side are the fearless Penny, the mighty Jack, the wise Mrs. Genevieve, and an antique pocket watch that, much like Harry Potter's cloak, can render you invisible.


Event schedule:

4:30-5pm - Buy books* (including pre-signed books) and enjoy a snack

5-5:30pm - Trenton Lee Stewart talk

5:30-6pm - Have your book signed!*


*Note: This event is free and open to the public, but a purchase of The Secret Keepers from Fiction Addiction at the event is required in order to join the signing line.

Books may be purchased online, at the store, or by calling Fiction Addiction at 864-675-0540.



The Secret Keepers

Acclaimed New York Times bestselling author, SC Children's Book Award nominee, and E.B. White Read Aloud Award winner Trenton Lee Stewart returns with a captivating, heart-stopping adventure about thrilling secrets and dangerous mysteries -- and the courage to reveal the most frightening of truths.


Eleven-year-old Reuben spends his days exploring, hiding, and practicing parkour among the abandoned buildings of the Lower Downs as a way to escape the rough times that have befallen him and his mom -- but his discovery of an extraordinary antique pocket watch changes everything. When Reuben finds that the watch has the power to turn him invisible, he's propelled on the adventure of a lifetime.


Now Reuben is being pursued by a group of dangerous men called the Directions, and someone -- or something -- ominously called The Smoke. They all want the watch, and with the help of new friends, it's up to Reuben to unravel the mysteries surrounding it and protect the city from evil.


In this ingeniously crafted novel, acclaimed author Trenton Lee Stewart invites readers to join the adventure, decipher the clues, and ask themselves the question: Is knowing a secret a gift or a curse?
