Gabriel Finley’s father, who disappeared three years ago when Gabriel was nine, loved riddles. He told Gabriel a riddle each day without fail. So Gabriel shares his love of riddles, as does his aunt, who is raising him in his missing parents’ absence, and as do ravens. You didn’t know that ravens love riddles? They do, and they also need them to tell regular ravens apart from the zombie-like valravens, whose evil entrance into the world hundreds of years ago first cleaved humans and ravens from their symbiotic relationship. Gabriel will need his wits—and his wit—about him, to fight the valravens and save his father. Ages 10 – 14 (Schwartz and Wade)

our next teen event

Tuesday, October 28, 7:00 pm

The backdrops of these young adult romances couldn’t be more different—the contemporary deep South, ancient Mesopotamia, an alternate-history New England undergoing witch trials, a fantastical world of literal angels and demons—and some are long-awaited continuations of a series while others are stand-alone, but what they have in common is, as Jessica Spotswood writes, “independent girls who still get in a fair amount of swoony kissing.” The four authors on this panel have a wide spectrum of different writing experiences and paths that have all led to big buzz books, and have promised to “spill some secrets” on this tour. Ages 15 and up
