Catherynne M. Valente at Wellesley Books

October 6, 2013 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Join Wellesley Books for an enchanting afternoon with New York Times-bestselling author Catherynne M. Valente.

She’ll be speaking to fans about the third installment in her Fairyland series, The Girl Who Soared Over Fairyland and Cut the Moon in Two. For readers of all ages who love the charm of Alice in Wonderland and the soul of The Golden Compass, Catherynne Valente’s Fairyland series is a reading experience unto itself: unforgettable, and so very beautiful. We’ll be serving tea and treats and we encourage fans to come in their favorite Fairyland-themed costume.

September misses Fairyland and her friends Ell, the Wyverary, and the boy Saturday. She longs to leave the routines of home, and embark on a new adventure. Little does she know that this time, she will be spirited away to the moon, reunited with her friends, and find herself faced with saving Fairyland from a moon-Yeti with great and mysterious powers. With exquisite illustrations by acclaimed artist Ana Juan, here is another rich, beautifully told, wisely humorous, and passionately layered book from New York Times-bestselling author, Catherynne M. Valente. Perfect for ages 10 and up.

Praise for the Fairyland series:
“One of the most extraordinary works of fantasy, for adults or children, published so far this century.” —TIME Magazine

Catherynne M. Valente, acclaimed author of many books for adults, made her children’s book debut with The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making. She lives on an island off the coast of Maine with her husband.
