LAUNCH EVENT for All the Greys on Green Street by LAURA TUCKER in conversation with REBECCA STEAD
Books of Wonder is proud to welcome New York Times bestselling author LAURA TUCKER as she is joined in conversation by Newbery Medalist REBECCA STEAD
SoHo, 1981. Twelve-year-old Olympia is an artist—and in her neighborhood, that’s normal. Her dad and his business partner Apollo bring antique paintings back to life, while her mother makes intricate sculptures in a corner of their loft, leaving Ollie to roam the streets of New York with her best friends Richard and Alex, drawing everything that catches her eye. Then everything falls apart. Ollie’s dad disappears in the middle of the night, leaving her only a cryptic note and instructions to destroy it. Her mom has gone to bed, and she’s not getting up. Apollo is hiding something, Alex is acting strange, and Richard has questions about the mysterious stranger he saw outside. And someone keeps calling, looking for a missing piece of art…. Olympia knows her dad is the key—but first, she has to find him, and time is running out.
Find out what masterpiece Olympia creates as the author discusses her exciting work with Newbery Medalist, REBECCA STEAD. Join us on June 2nd at our 18th Street store as LAURA TUCKER discusses her writing, answers questions from the audience, and signs copies of her books. Ages 8 to 12. Sunday, June 2nd, 1-3pm.
