You all know Lesley Livingston as the author of such sweeping paranormal YA epics as the Wondrous Strange trilogy, The Never trilogy, and the Starling trilogy, but did you know she is also a great middle grade writer? Come celebrate the release of this fun new series at an all-ages event. If you’ve never been to a Livingston book party you’re in for a treat.  Expect music, fun, and popcorn!

  1. Sometimes I think that living in Montreal means we’re missing out on good bookish events!! My kids and I are listening to Matilda on audio in our car. So good!
