TUESDAY, OCTOBER 1, 6:30 PM

J. A. WHITE, author of Nightbooks and the Thickery series, will introduce his new spooky book SHADOW SCHOOL ARCHIMANCY. In it we meet young Cordelia Liu who is starting the year in a new school. She figured the school was going to be different, but she didn’t expect the school grounds to be filled with ghosts. Not everyone can see the ghosts, but Cordelia and her new friends Benji and super-smart Agnes can. The trio set out to discover why the ghosts are there and find a way to free them. They soon discover that someone is willing to go to extreme lengths to ensure that the ghosts remain trapped forever. (If you like spooky stories...but not too spooky, this one is for you.)

J. A. WHITE is a teacher of English, Math and Science in New Jersey.
