Inprint invites you to enjoy an afternoon with Newbery Honor Award winner Ann M. Martin. Martin, beloved author of the Baby-sitters Club series, will make a presentation about her New York Times bestselling middle grade novel Rain Reign. After the presentation, she will take questions from the audience, followed by a book sale and signing*, giving fans a chance to visit with her. Books will be available for sale at the event through Blue Willow Bookshop.
Ann Martin has written more than 35 books in the popular Baby-sitters Club series. Her other major books include Ten Rules for Living with My Sister, Ten Good and Bad Things About My Life, and Everything for a Dog. She won a Newbery Honor Award for A Corner of the Universe.
She comes to Houston to share her New York Times bestseller Rain Reign, a powerful story about Rose Howard, a girl on the autism spectrum, and the dog she loves. The New York Times Book Review writes, “Ann M. Martin, a Newbery Honor winner, offers this affecting, elegantly burnished middle-grade book about a girl with autism. . . . And yet the book isn’t actually about autism, or even any coming-of-age theme. It’s about love and fealty, fear, hope, the release from burdens, and what kids–all kids–need but often don’t get.” Author Kate DiCamillo calls it “heartbreaking and heart-mending at the same time.”
*Please note that the book signing will be conducted on a first-come, first-served basis. Upon entering the theater, people wishing to have books signed will be given a number, and the book signing will take place in numerical order after the on-stage presentation.
