Battle of the Books Author P.W. Catance at Baldwin Library Dec. 6th:
Author P.W. Catanese will be appearing at the Baldwin Public Library (300 W. Merrill St., Birmingham, MI 48009) on Monday, Dec. 6 at 7pm to sign his latest children’s book, Happenstance Found, the first title in his Books of Umber series. Happenstance Found is one of this year’s Birmingham Battle Books. Books will be available for purchase at the event, along with this year’s other Battle Books.
“Catanese’s forte is in defining the features of the colorful imaginary world he creates, which is part steampunk, part fairy tale, and has a surprising contemporary twist. Merpeople, leviathans, and sorceresses mingle with Mozart, mirrors, and elevators in this unusual culture…a cinematic quality that will be enjoyed by a wide range of fantasy readers.” – The Horn Book
Described as part steampunk and part fairy tale, it is the story of a boy with unusual green eyes who awakens in a dark tunnel with no memories. Happenstance’s uncanny gifts begin to emerge as he travels with the mysterious Lord Umber. He is also the author of the Further Tales Adventures, a series of sequels to classic fairy tales, which will also be available for purchase at the event.
Registration is required for this event. Please contact the Baldwin Library at (248) 554-4670 or baldwinlib.org.
