Can’t wait until YALLFest? Us either. So in the meantime, we are very excited to be the last stop on March’s Story Crush Tour, on Wed., March 5, 5 pm. The Story Crush Tour is bringing five YA authors to Charleston: Lauren Oliver (Panic), Courtney Stevens (Faking Normal), Katie Cougno (How to Love), Robyn Schneider (The Beginning of Everything), and Melissa Kantor (Maybe One Day), and we’ll have them all in the store.

Each writer’s most recent work has debuted within the last couple of months, and Lauren Oliver’s novel Panic (HarperCollins, hb., 416 pp, $17.99), debuts the day before the event. In Panic, we meet Heather and Dodge, the dead-end town of Carp, a mess of secrets, and a high-stakes, dangerous game called Panic. The novel debuts the day before the event, so this will be one of the first opportunities to have it signed!
