Last, but not least, Young Adult authors Cassandra Clare and Holly Black will be speaking and signing books at the Odyssey Bookshop in South Hadley on Friday April 22 at 7 pm. Each has just released a new book, City of Fallen Angels, and Red Glove, respectively. If you’ve read anything by either of these fantastic authors, you should come to this event. I’m planning to go!
