Live Launch Event for The Dream Runners by Shveta Thakrar
Get Lost in An Exciting New World!
Seven years ago, Tanvi was spirited away to the subterranean realm of Nagalok, where she joined the ranks of the dream runners: human children freed of all memory and emotion, who now collect mortal dreams for the entertainment of the immortal naga court.
But when one of Tanvi’s dream harvests goes awry, she begins to remember her life on earth. Panicked and confused, she turns to the one mortal in Nagalok who might be able to help: Venkat, the dreamsmith responsible for collecting the dream runners’ wares and shaping them into the kingdom’s most tantalizing commodity. And as they search for answers, a terrifying truth begins to take shape—one that could turn the nagas’ realm of dreams into a land of waking nightmare.
From SHVETA THAKRAR, the author of the Indie Next selection and Andre Norton Award finalist Star Daughter, this stand-alone contemporary fantasy, partly inspired by Hindu mythology, is full of slow-burning romance, haunting intrigue, and shimmering magic.
SHVETA THAKRAR will be in conversation with SARA CLETO and BRITTANY WARMAN of the Carterhaugh School.
Tuesday, June 28th at 6:00PM EST at our 17th St. Store!
