Deadly Magic: Vengeance, Justice, and Destiny

Sat, Nov 10, 2018 from 3:15 pm - 4:15 pm PST
1422 SW 11th Ave Portland, Oregon 97201

Secrets, magic, and extraordinary powers run through two fantastical YA series. Marissa Meyer, author of the Lunar Chronicles, presents a new world in the Renegades series. Book two, Archenemies, finds Nova, our heroine, confronted with the possible destruction of Gatlon City and the world as she knows it. In Tochi Onyebuchi’s debut series, Beasts Made of Night, a young man, Taj, finds himself at the center of a dark conspiracy. The sequel, Crown of Thunder, has Taj on the run and questioning his true identity. Moderated by Alicia Tate of Multnomah County Library.

Attendees 17 years of age and under and/or with valid high school ID receive free admission to the Portland Book Festival. Advance 2018 Portland Book Festival passes available now.
