EXTRA AWESOME MARCH!: Wonder Show by Hannah Barnaby

Ah dang, next month is going to be crazy awesome.

I'm not just going on about the SUPER BIG DEAL AUTHOR EVENT (or SBDAE?) with Lauren Oliver again - oh no, mon frére, there's even more awesome to come. There are freebies and words with authors and stuffs.  Keep reading.

So our book for March is Wonder Show by Hannah Barnaby.  And yes, you guessed it, it's about a wonder show - that's kind of like a circus (oooooo, whiiiimsicaaal). Now read the synopsis:

Wonder Show by Hannah Barnaby

"Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, step inside Mosco's Traveling Wonder Show, a menagerie of human curiosities and misfits guaranteed to astound and amaze! But perhaps the strangest act of Mosco's display is Portia Remini, a normal among the freaks, on the run from McGreavy's Home for Wayward Girls, where Mister watches and waits. He said he would always find Portia, that she could never leave. Free at last, Portia begins a new life on the bally, seeking answers about her father's disappearance. Will she find him before Mister finds her? 

Oh, it’s not for the faint of heart folks. If you’re prone to nightmares or you've got a weak ticker, you’d best move on. Within these pages lies a tale of abandonment, loss, misfortune for the rich and glory for the poor (and a little murder doesn't hurt). It’s a story for the ages, but be warned: once you enter the Wonder Show you will never be the same."

Sounds... awesome.  And kinda creepy.  That, with some flour and eggs, baked at 375° for 30 minutes, should make a delicious soufflé of excellent reading.  Yummmm.

So you know how we give out a free copy of the next meeting's book to the first ten people to sign up?  Yeah, well this month, it's the first, like, fifteen or twenty people to sign up.  Yep - extra free books. How do we have so many, you ask?  Wonder Show's awesome author (Hannah Barnaby) GAVE THEM TO US.  So. Stinkin'. Nice.

Speaking of Wonder Show's awesome author, Hannah Barnaby is going to Skype with us during the meeting.  F'reels.  You can ask her all your omigosh-dying-to-know questions about the book, about writing and being an author, whatever.  For more info on Hannah Barnaby, check out her website or this interview.

So if you haven't made it to a meeting yet - or you have a friend you've been trying to get to come - this is the meeting. Because there are extra books, there is an extra-special-author-skype-session-thing (OMGawesome), and there's more hype for Lauren Oliver's visit(!) happening a few days later.  So am I right or AM I SO RIGHT?! - March is going to be sooo crazy awesome.

Swing by the library, sign up for the next meeting and get your own copy of Wonder Show - and drag a friend along while you're at it.  And make sure to read Wonder Show and come to the meeting (March 7th, 6pm) with some author questions for Hannah Barnaby!
