Unexpected connections, unexplained power, and secrets unearthed in three fantastical novels that delve into various folklore and myth. In The Candle and the Flame, Nafiza Azad introduces Fatima, a messenger living in the fantastical Silk Road city of Noor, where humans and the mystical djinn coexist. Shea Ernshaw’s Winterwood is a dark fairy tale of a witch, a boy, and a magical wood. A new epic fantasy trilogy begins with Katy Rose Pool’s debut There Will Come a Darkness, which introduces one prophecy and five potential saviors—or five potential destroyers. Moderated by Ebonee Bell of Multnomah County Library.

Attendees 17 years of age and younger and/or with valid high school ID enjoy free admission. Advance Portland Book Festival passes available now.
