Young adult fiction lovers unite at a reading with New York Times best-selling author Marie Lu, who comes to Spokane to celebrate the release of her latest book, Wildcard. In this the sequel to Lu’s action-packed novel Warcross, readers return to the series’ futuristic cyberpunk setting, where, in the last book, protagonist Emika Chen barely made it out alive in a virtual reality competition called the Warcross Championship. Co-hosting the reading is local writer Kris Dinnison, author of the YA novel You and Me and Him. Dinnison will chat with Lu about the new book and possibly Lu’s other works in the Legend and Young Elites trilogies. To get a seat at the event, make sure to preorder a copy of Wildcard from Auntie’s Bookstore.
