Join us for a virtual author talk with the instant #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Red Queen and Realm Breaker series, Victoria Aveyard, as she chats about YA fantasy fiction, world-building, and her incredible body of work.      

In the bestselling series Realm Breaker, a strange darkness grows in Allward, even Corayne an-Amarat can feel it in her small town at the edge of the sea. The long-lost heir to an ancient lineage, it’s not until Corayne meets a rag-tag group of companions that she learns how to wield the magic slumbering in her blood—and how together they might stop what’s coming. 

As the realm descends into chaos, the choices are clear: Save the world…or end it. Together, they stand against a vicious opponent, determined to burn all kingdoms to ash and an army unlike anything the realm has ever witnessed.

You’re invited to a virtual author talk with New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Land as she talks to us about her new memoir, Class: A Memoir of Motherhood, Hunger, and Higher Education.            

In Class, Land takes us with her as she finishes college and pursues her writing career. Facing barriers at every turn, including a byzantine loan system, not having enough money for food, and navigating the judgments of professors and fellow students who didn’t understand the demands of attending college while under the poverty line—Land finds a way to survive once again, finally graduating in her mid-thirties.

Class paints an intimate and heartbreaking portrait of motherhood as it converges and often conflicts with personal desire and professional ambition. In clear, candid, and moving prose, Class offers a searing indictment of America’s educational system and an inspiring testimony of a mother’s triumph against all odds.
