Printz Award winner and National Book Award finalist, The Windup Girl and Pump Six and Other Stories. Bacigalupi will read from and sign his new novel for young readers The Drowned Cities (Little, Brown Books for Young Readers). In a dark future America where violence, terror, and grief touch everyone, young refugees Mahlia and Mouse have managed to leave behind the Drowned Cities by escaping into the jungle outskirts. But when they discover a wounded half-man who is being hunted by a vengeful band of soldiers, their fragile existence quickly collapses. This thrilling companion to Bacigalupi’s highly acclaimed Ship Breaker is a haunting and powerful story of loyalty, survival, and heart-pounding adventure.
