Read Earth and Sky by Megan Crewe, and then come hang out with the author and with other teens grades 8 to 12 to discuss the book's highlights, lowlights, and everything in between. The program is free, but space is limited. Be sure to register online.

Megan Crewe is a Toronto author visiting us via Skype. Be sure to come prepared with questions about her book Earth and Sky as well as any burning personal life questions you may have for her, such as "Why have you been studying Kung Fu for the last six years?".

Earth and Sky by Megan Crewe is a thrilling dystopian. "Seventeen-year-old Skylar has always been haunted by fleeting yet powerful feelings that something around her has gone wrong. Those impressions have never seemed to reflect anything real, but after she meets a mysterious boy named Win, she learns an unsettling truth: we are not alone on Earth. In fact, visitors from beyond the stars are manipulating our planet and the essential fabric of our world; life as we know it is starting to unravel. And Skylar—and her heightened awareness—just may be the key to our salvation" --www.bookmanager.com.
