Award-winning graphic novelist Raina Telgemeier (author and illustrator of the hugely popular Smile, Drama, and Sisters, and adaptations of the Baby-sitters Club series) will celebrate the release of her highly-anticipated new book, Ghosts, at an offsite and ticketed event. Day of the Dead, chronic illness, and the power of family and friendship are themes in Ghosts.
Eleven-year-old Catrina and her family are moving to the small Northern California coastal town of Bahía de la Luna because her younger sister, Maya, is sick. Cat isn’t happy about leaving her friends, but she tries not to complain because she knows Maya will benefit from the clean, cool air that blows in from the sea. As the girls settle in, they learn there’s something a little spooky about their new town. Ghosts has received starred reviews in Publishers Weekly, Booklist, and School Library Journal!
This offsite event will be held at: Santa Cruz County Veterans Memorial Building, 846 Front St., Downtown Santa Cruz
