Authors @ Your Library: September 2010

St. Louis, MO . . . The St. Louis Public Library is proud to present an array of exceptional authors in September including Jonathan Franzen, William Gibson, Inara Scott, and Meg Selig. All events are FREE and open to the public.

*  Inara Scott discusses and signs her debut young adult novel, Delcroix Academy: Book One: The Candidates. The event takes place at the Buder Branch, 4401 Hampton Ave., on September 16 at 6 p.m. Delcroix Academy educates the nation’s brightest and uniquely talented teens. But what is its real mission? Book One: The Candidates finds street-smart freshman Dancia Lewis learning how to use her magical talents while solving a supernatural mystery. Books available for purchase courtesy of Pudd’nHead Books.

*  William Gibson discusses and signs, Zero History. The event takes place at the Schlafly Branch, 225 N. Euclid Ave., on September 19 at 2 p.m. Hollis Henry worked for the global marketing magnate Hubertus Bigend once before, and she never meant to repeat the experience. But she’s broke, and Bigend never feels it’s beneath him to use whatever power comes his way—in this case, the power of money to bring Hollis onto his team again. Co-sponsored by Left Bank Books.  Books for sale courtesy of Left Bank Books.

*  Jonathan Franzen discusses and signs, Freedom, in which he offers an epic of contemporary love and marriage. The event takes place at the Schlafly Branch, 225 N. Euclid Ave., on September 20 at 7 p.m. Freedom comically and tragically captures the temptations and burdens of liberty: the thrills of teenage lust, the shaken compromises of middle age, the wages of suburban sprawl, and the heavy weight of empire. Franzen has produced an indelible and deeply moving portrait of our time. Co-sponsored by Left Bank Books. Books for sale courtesy of Left Bank Books.

*  Meg Selig discusses and signs her book, Changepower! 37 Secrets to Habit Change Success, in which she guides readers through a step-by-step process that will help them achieve any habit change goal. The event takes place at the Buder Branch, 4401 Hampton Ave., on September 25 at 10 a.m. Books available for purchase courtesy of the author.
