YA author event with Mary Pearson, Sara Raasch, and Kristen Simmons
Sat, Aug 11 2:00 pm
Parnassus Books is thrilled to present three critically acclaimed, bestselling young adult authors for a discussion and signing of their new books. New York Times bestseller Mary Pearson will discuss Dance of Thieves; New York Times bestseller Sara Raasch will discuss These Rebel Waves, and critically acclaimed author Kristen Simmons will discuss Pacifica. Read on for important event information, as well as to discover more about each author and their new book! Mary E. Pearson: Mary E. Pearson is the author of many novels for teens, including the New York Times-bestselling Remnant Chronicles: The Kiss of Deception, The Heart of Betrayal, The Beauty of Darkness, and the acclaimed Jenna Fox Chronicles. She writes full-time from her home in Carlsbad, California. Sara Raasch: Sara Raasch has known she was destined for bookish things since the age of five when her friends had a lemonade stand and she tagged along to sell her hand-drawn picture books too. Not much has changed since then: her friends still cock concerned eyebrows when she attempts to draw things, and her enthusiasm for the written word still drives her to extreme measures. She is the New York Times bestselling author of the Snow Like Ashes series. Kristen Simmon: Kristen Simmons is the author of the Article 5 series, The Glass Arrow, and Metaltown. She has worked with survivors of abuse and trauma as a mental health therapist, taught Jazzercise in five states, and is forever in search of the next best cupcake. Currently, she lives in Cincinnati, Ohio with her husband, where she spends her days supporting the caffeine industry and chasing her delightfully rambunctious son.
