Omega City Launch - May 20 @ 6:30 pm with Diana Peterfreund and Mari Mancusi

Current Lonestar list Author Diana Peterfreund is bringing her new book, Omega City, to The Book Spot to launch it into the world. This new Middle Grade adventure is a great read for all readers age 10 and up. Diana has also asked our mutual friend Mari Mancusi to join her at the shop, so we will have TWO great authors this Wednesday at 6:30pm!

The first middle grade novel in an exciting new series from acclaimed author Diana Peterfreund, perfect for fans of The Goonies and The City of Ember.
Gillian Seagret doesn't listen to people who say her father's a crackpot. His conspiracy theories about the lost technology of Cold War–era rocket scientist Dr. Aloysius Underberg may have cost him his job and forced them to move to the middle of nowhere, but Gillian knows he's right and plans to prove it.

When she discovers a missing page from Dr. Underberg's diary in her father's mess of an office, she thinks she's found a big piece of the puzzle—a space-themed riddle promising to lead to Dr. Underberg's greatest invention. Enlisting the help of her skeptical younger brother, Eric, her best friend, Savannah, and Howard, their NASA-obsessed schoolmate, Gillian sets off on a journey into the ruins of Omega City, a vast doomsday bunker deep inside the earth,.
But they aren't alone inside its dark and flooded halls. For while Gillian wants to save her dad's reputation by bringing Dr. Underberg's secrets to light, there are others who will stop at nothing to make sure they stay buried . . . forever.

Join us at 6:30pm this Wednesday for a great Young Adult event. For more information on the event, please check out our facebook event at:

Blast from the Past Book Tour - 3/9 @ 6:30p

We are excited to kick off the first leg of the Blast from the Past Tour with Cory Oakes and Jo Whittemore. We've been lucky to do events with these two incredible authors before, so believe us when we say, you want to be here!  Both authors have new middle grade releases that are good for 4th grade through middle school, but they have also written YA, so there is something for everyone!

Cory's new book, Dinosaur Boy is one of our most anticipated middle grade books of the year. It is her first middle grade, but is a great story and fun for boys and girls.  Jo's latest release, Colonial Madness, is her first hardback middle grade release and is a fun mother-daughter story.

Come join us at 6:30pm on Monday March 9 with Jo Whittemore and Cory Oakes!

Can't make the event, but still want a book? Order here and we will ship it out on Tuesday:
