Meet David Barclay Moore at Books of Wonder!

Join us for this LAUNCH EVENT to celebrate Holler of the Fireflies on 17th St.!


A boy from the hood in Brooklyn travels to a STEM camp in an Appalachian holler for one epic, life-changing summer. This is Holler of the Fireflies by DAVID BARCLAY MOORE, the award-winning author of The Stars Beneath Our Feet! We are so proud to host DAVID BARCLAY MOORE in conversation with OLUGBEMISOLA RHUDAY-PERKOVICH, the author of Operation Sisterhood!

Javari knew that West Virginia would be different from his home in Bushwick, Brooklyn. But his first day at STEM Camp in a little Appalachian town is still a shock. Though run-ins with the police are just the same here. Not good.

Javari will learn a lot about science, tech, engineering, and math at camp. And also about rich people, racism, and hidden agendas. But it's Cricket, a local boy, budding activist, and occasional thief, who will show him a different side of the holler-- and blow his mind wide open.

Javari is about to have that summer. Where everything gets messy and complicated and confusing... and you wouldn't want it any other way.


Save the date for this can't-miss launch of Holler of the Fireflies with DAVID BARCLAY MOORE and OLUGBEMISOLA RHUDAY-PERKOVICH! Meet these two wonderful authors and dive into all the unexpected twists & turns of one Appalachian summer, with Signed and Personalized books available!
