Award-Winning Author Justine Larbalestier Talks About Her Latest Book
At The Kansas City Public Library

On Thursday, October 9, at 7 p.m. at the Plaza Branch, 4801 Main St. award-winning young adult author Justine Larbalestier will discuss her latest book, How to Ditch Your Fairy.

On the heels of her acclaimed Magic or Madness trilogy, the Australian is back with a story of fairies, friendships, and understanding how to make your own magic. At New Avalon Sports High, everyone has a personal fairy. For 14 year-old Charlie, having a Parking Fairy is worse than no fairy – especially when the school bully carts her around like a personal parking pass. But when Charlie decides to team up with her arch enemy Fiorenza, who owns an All-The-Boys-You-Like Fairy, and gets what her heart desires, Charlie figures out it’s not what it’s cracked up to be and takes extraordinary measures to ditch her fairy.

The event is co-sponsored by Reading Reptile. Admission is free. Call 816.701.3407 to indicate your interest in attending or you may RSVP online.
