Highlands Ranch: Neal Shusterman is a screen and TV writer, and the author of thirty books for young readers, including the best-selling Unwind and Skinjacker trilogies, and the critically acclaimed The Schwa Was Here and Downsiders. Eric Elfman is a screenwriter, a professional writing coach, and the author of several books for children and young adults, including The Almanac of the Gross, Disgusting & Totally Repulsive. Shusterman and Elfman will present their first book together Tesla’s Attic: The Accelerati Trilogy, Book One ($16.99 Disney). “This entertaining and often surprising first book in Shusterman and Elfman’s Accelerati trilogy is well-timed to take advantage of the resurgent interest in Nicola Tesla (and an omnipresent interest in secret societies and conspiracies). The authors have fun with a large cast of characters (and the historical record), making for an exciting and imaginative thriller with some skillful twists.” —Andrea Brown, Publishers Weekly Can’t make it to the signing?

Colfax Avenue: TaraShea Nesbit will read from and sign her critically-acclaimed debut novel The Wives of Los Alamos ($25.00 Bloomsbury). Their average age was twenty-five. They came from Berkeley, Cambridge, Paris, London, Chicago—and arrived in New Mexico ready for adventure, or at least resigned to it. But hope quickly turned to hardship as they were forced to adapt to a rugged military town where everything was a secret, including what their husbands were doing at the lab. “I am in awe of this novel. TaraShea Nesbit’s brave and brilliant choice of point of view for these women living inside their earth-shattering secret crucible brings home to us in the fullest way possible that our personal story is never just ours. The Wives of Los Alamos will be read and re-read and remembered.” —Gail Godwin Can’t make it to the signing? Request an autographed copy here: email@example.com TaraShea Nesbit’s website
