A Middle Grade Fantasy Book Talk & Signing
Bestselling author Kelly Barnhill will discuss and sign The Girl Who Drank the Moon ($9.95 Algonquin Young Readers), winner of the 2017 John Newbery Medal for the year’s most distinguished contribution to American literature for children.
Every year, the people of the Protectorate leave a baby as an offering to the evil witch who lives in the forest. But the witch in the Forest, Xan, is kind. Xan rescues the children and delivers them to welcoming families, nourishing the babies with starlight on the journey. One year, Xan accidentally feeds a baby moonlight instead of starlight, filling the ordinary child with extraordinary magic. Xan decides she must raise this girl, whom she calls Luna, as her own. As Luna’s thirteenth birthday approaches, her magic begins to emerge--with dangerous consequences.
