Veronica Roth with Charlie Jane Anders

April 21, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm PDT

$10 – $40

Maybe you’re already familiar with Veronica Roth because you or someone you know reads her wildly popular YA, including the #1 New York Times best-selling Divergent series. The talented and internationally known bestseller whose books have graced the silver screen visits in April with one of our favorite locals, fantasy icon Charlie Jane Anders, for something completely different.

Whether you’re already a fan or a first-timer, you’re going to love this.

Roth visits to share a new fast-paced fantasy novel for adults that turns her razor-sharp wit on a strange trope in the genre: the fact that so many grown adults in fantasy stories rely on literal kids to save the world. Luke Skywalker, Buffy Summers, Greta Thunberg… no pressure, kiddo!

What happens to those kids? Chosen Ones follows the story of fated young heroes after they’re done saving the world, and have to deal with the aftermath. Edgy, riveting, fun, and a little dark… did you think the Harry Potter epilogue fell flat? This is the book you need.

Part thriller, fantasy and sci-fi, Roth’s novel is the perfect read for people who know the fantasy genre “chosen ones” trope by heart, and has already earned the glowing praise of readers like Blake Crouch and Diana Gabaldon. Meet the author and read it before everyone else on April 21st at Kepler’s.

“This dark, complex novel rocked my heart and left me with a renewed sense that saving the world is a job that never ends… You’ll never look at fantasy heroes the same way again.” —Charlie Jane Anders, Hugo & Nebula Award winning author of The City in the Middle of the Night.
