Marie Lu: Skyhunter

One of the biggest highlights this fall for Auntie’s Bookstore is an upcoming special event with bestselling young adult author Marie Lu, who, if not for the pandemic, might have been too busy to swing through the Lilac City while promoting her latest book, Skyhunter. Instead, Lu is presenting to Spokane readers via a virtual meet-and-greet that also gives each attendee (50 “seats” are available) a bit of one-on-one time with the L.A.-based author, artist and video game industry veteran. To participate in the online event, you’ll need to preorder a copy of Skyhunter from Auntie’s, which releases a few days before Lu’s talk, and can be picked up at the store or mailed to your home. Skyhunter is a dystopian tale set in a war-torn world where a team of young elite warriors are committed to doing whatever it takes to defeat an evil, conquering federation. See a full synopsis and order your copy on Auntie’s website.
