Great Upcoming Events for Kids




Fri, Jan 10th - 7:00pm

Bookshop Santa Cruz welcomes bestselling author Kiersten White who will share her new book, Chosen. Nina continues to learn how to use her slayer powers against enemies old and new in this second novel in the New York Times bestselling series set in the world of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Now that Nina has turned the Watcher's Castle into a utopia for hurt and lonely demons, she's still waiting for the utopia part to kick in. With her sister Artemis gone and only a few people remaining at the castle--including her still-distant mother--Nina has her hands full. Plus, though she gained back her Slayer powers from Leo, they're not feeling quite right after being held by the seriously evil succubus Eve, a.k.a. fake Watcher's Council member and Leo's mom.

And while Nina is dealing with the darkness inside, there's also a new threat on the outside, portended by an odd triangle symbol that seems to be popping up everywhere, in connection with Sean's demon drug ring as well as someone a bit closer to home. Because one near-apocalypse just isn't enough, right?

The darkness always finds you. And once again, it's coming for the Slayer.

Kiersten White is the New York Times bestselling author of many books for teens and young readers, including And I Darken, Now I Rise, Bright We Burn, The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein, and Slayer. She lives with her family near the ocean in San Diego, where she perpetually lurks in the shadows. Visit Kiersten online at KierstenWhite.com and follow @KierstenWhite on Twitter.

This free event will take place at Bookshop Santa Cruz. Chairs for open seating are usually set up about an hour before the event begins.

Mon, Feb 3rd - 4:00pm

Bookshop is delighted to welcome back author and illustrator Nick Bruel, who will join us to share Bad Kitty Joins the Team, the newest book in his hilarious and bestseling series.

See Kitty as you've never seen her before: EXERCISING (reluctantly) in the latest installment of the phenomenally successful New York Times–bestelling series. Kitty is terribly out of shape—she can barely torment Puppy without needing a break to huff and puff! When Kitty's owner catches her wheezing, Kitty is told it's time to EXERCISE.

It takes some serious convincing, a high-stakes competition, and a little bit of trickery but eventually Kitty gets into the competitive spirit . . . albeit reluctantly. What did you expect?

Will our favorite feline friend learn what it means to be a good sport? Find out in this hilarious addition to the Bad Kitty series.

Nick Bruel is the author and illustrator of New York Times bestseller BoingBad KittyBad Kitty Gets a Bath and Bad Kitty Meets the Baby, among others. Nick is a freelance illustrator and cartoonist, and during his down time, he collects PEZ dispensers and grows tomatoes in the backyard. He lives in Tarrytown, NY with his wife Carina and their lovely cat Esmerelda.

 

This free kids event will take place at Bookshop Santa Cruz. Open seating is usually set up by about an hour before the event begins. If you have any ADA accommodation requests, please email info@bookshopsantacruz.com by February 1st.
