Eventbrite - KRISTIN CASHORE - "Jane Unlimited"

Meet award-winning, New York Times bestselling author of the Graceling Realm series, Kristin Cashore will talk with Editor, Kathy Dawson about her highly anticipated standalone - JANE UNLIMITED - a kaleidoscopic novel about grief, adventure, storytelling, and finding yourself in a world of seemingly infinite choices.

Jane has lived an ordinary life, raised by her aunt Magnolia—an adjunct professor and deep sea photographer. Jane counted on Magnolia to make the world feel expansive and to turn life into an adventure. But Aunt Magnolia was lost a few months ago in Antarctica on one of her expeditions.

Now, with no direction, a year out of high school, and obsessed with making umbrellas that look like her own dreams (but mostly just mourning her aunt), she is easily swept away by Kiran Thrash—a glamorous, capricious acquaintance who shows up and asks Jane to accompany her to a gala at her family's island mansion called Tu Reviens.

Kristin Cashore grew up in the northeast Pennsylvania countryside as the second of four daughters, she has worked as a dog runner, a packer in a candy factory, an editorial assistant, a legal assistant, and a freelance writer. She has lived in many places (including Sydney, New York City, Boston, London, Austin, and Jacksonville, Florida), and she currently lives in the Boston area. Her epic fantasy novels set in the Graceling Realm—Graceling, Fire, and Bitterblue—are all award-winning, New York Times bestsellers and have won much high praise, including picks as ALA Best Books for Young Adults, School Library Journal Best Book of the Year, Booklist Editors Choice, and Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year. In addition, Graceling was shortlisted for the William C. Morris Debut Award and Fire is an Amelia Elizabeth Walden Book Award Winner.

"Absolutely addictive and fascinating, Jane, Unlimited is storytelling at its best. Filled with spies, stolen artwork, cute dinosaurs, new worlds, and delicious romance, this book is everything you could hope for and more than you can imagine."—Marie Rutkoski, author of The Winner's Curse
