Children’s Activities at The BookwormThursday, March 13 / 6 p.m. Kathy and Brendan Reichs will sign the Virals series for young adults. The latest in this series is Exposure (Penguin, $17.99), in which fifteen-year-old Tory and her "viral" friends, who contracted heightened, wolflike senses during an experiment gone wrong, investigate an abduction case and make some troubling new discoveries about their powers. Other books in the Virals series (all Penguin, $8.99) include Code (Tory and the Virals find a geocache containing an ornate puzzle box), Seizure (Tory and her friends rescue a kidnapped wolf pup with a rare strain of canine parvovirus), and Virals (Rescuing a dog caged for medical testing exposes Tory and her friends to an experimental strain of canine parvovirus that changes their lives forever). Kathy Reichs is a forensic anthropologist and the bestselling author of the Temperance Brennan series of adult books and the producer of the TV series Bones, based on her books.
Thursday, March 13 / 6 p.m. Amiable Adult Readers Discussing Books Almost Always Read by Kids (Aardbaark) will discuss Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick by Joe Schreiber (Graphia, $8.99). It's prom night--and Perry just wants to stick to his own plan and finally play a much anticipated gig with his band in the Big Apple. But when his mother makes him take Gobija Zaksauskas--their quiet, geeky Lithuanian exchange student--to the prom, he never expects that his ordinary high school guy life will soon turn on its head. Perry finds that Gobi is on a mission, and Perry has no other choice but to go along for a reckless ride through Manhattan's concrete grid with a trained assassin in Dad's red Jag. Infused with capers, car chases, heists, hits, henchmen, and even a bear fight, this story mixes romance, comedy, and tragedy in a true teen coming-of-age adventure--and it's not over until it's "au revoir."
