ABOUT THE BOOK: The Last Voyage of Poe Blythe
The Last Voyage of Poe Blythe is part murder mystery, part revenge novel, part coming-of-age story. In it, seventeen-year-old Poe Blythe has vowed to annihilate the mysterious river raiders who robbed her of everything two years ago. But as she navigates the treacherous waters of the Serpentine and realizes there might be a traitor among her crew, she must also reckon with who she has become, who she wants to be, and the ways love can change and shape you. Even--and especially--when you think all is lost.


This is a 45 minute presentation. Details to come. 

Middle School and High School; Grades 6-9

150-400 students

Projector for PowerPoint presentation, microphone (if large group), clicker, and laptop for PowerPoint; bottle of water.

Tattered Cover will design an order form that the school should distribute in advance of the author visit, and again on the day of the event to all student attendees.

Link to share with students and their families to order Ally's books: 

Please make sure anyone ordering online includes the name of your school in the Notes section of the order and if they'd like to pick up the book from you at the school. Please DO NOT give a book to someone who says they ordered online unless they have the printed confirmation. PLEASE KEEP THIS! You'll need to include these confirmations when returning the leftover books so you won't be charged for them! If they do ask you for a book without a confirmation, just email us the name of the student and parent's name and we can check. DEADLINE: Online orders with SCHOOL PICK UP will only be available for one week after the school visit. Orders placed after that time will need to be picked up at one of our locations, or shipped.
