HUDSON VALLEY YA SOCIETY: Andrea Cremer, Mariah Fredericks, Jill Larkin & Kat Rosenfield
This event will be held at Oblong Books & Music, 6422 Montgomery St., Rhinebeck, NY.
Andrea Cremer is a New York Times and international bestselling author. She spent her childhood daydreaming while roaming the forests and lakeshores of Northern Wisconsin. RIFT is the stunning prequel to her internationally bestselling Nightshade trilogy, that chronicles the rose of The Keepers. With action, adventure, magic, and tantalizing sensuality, this book is as fast-paced and breathtaking as the Nightshade novels.
In Mariah Fredericks' latest thriller, The Girl in the Park, Wendy Geller’s body is found in Central Park after the night of a rager, newspaper headlines scream,”Death in the Park: Party Girl Found Strangled.” But shy Rain, once Wendy’s best friend, knows there was more to Wendy than just “party girl.” As she struggles to separate the friend she knew from the tangle of gossip and headlines, Rain becomes determined to discover the truth about the murder.
Jillian Larkin's fascination with flappers and the 1920s era began
during her childhood, which included frequent home screenings of the
classic Julie Andrews and Carol Channing film Thoroughly Modern Millie. The latest book in her popular, best selling Flappers series, Diva, is chock full of parties, bad boys, and speakeasies. Life in Manhattan has become a woozy blur
for Clara Knowles. If Marcus Eastman truly loved her, how could he have
fallen for another girl so quickly? If she has to be unhappy, she's going to
drag everyone else down to the depths of despair right along with her. Jillian lives in New York.
Kat Rosenfield's new novel, Amelia Anne is Dead & Gone, is an arresting un-coming-of-age story. Becca has always longed to break free from her small, backwater hometown. But the discovery of an unidentified dead girl on the side of a dirt road sends the town, and Becca, into a tailspin. Unable to make sense of the violence of the outside world creeping into her backyard, Becca finds herself retreating inward, paralyzed from moving forward for the first time in her life. Short chapters detailing the last days of Amelia Anne Richardson's life are intercut with Becca's own summer as the parallel stories of two young women struggling with self-identity and relationships on the edge twist the reader closer and closer to the truth about Amelia's death. Kat Rosenfield is a freelance writer and YA author. She lives in New England, but that might change.
