Katherine Applegate Author Event!

September 30, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

At the Decatur Library

Katherine Applegate, the award-winning author of The One and Only Ivan, Home of the Brave, and Crenshaw, returns to Decatur to promote her newest middle grade novel, Wishtree! The Decatur Library will host the presentation and signing. Wishtree tells the story of the oak tree Red and her motley band of animals. When an ugly message is scrawled into her bark, Red decides to break her own rules, speak to humans, and do her best to bring people together (and survive herself). In her usual style, Applegate’s newest work is simple and digestible for kids but steeped in an important message. Along with Georgia Center for the Book, we are thrilled to help her share this timely and necessary book!

This event, happening at Decatur Library (NOT at Little Shop of Stories), is free and open to the public. Attendees must purchase a copy of the book in order to earn a place in the signing line. Books will be available for purchase at the event itself!
