Fairest Book coverA book launch P A R T Y!
Fairest (The Lunar Chronicles)
Marissa Meyer, Author
Tuesday, January 27 @ 6 p.m.
Olympic Room, Main Library

Mirror, mirror, on the wall,
Who is the fairest of them all?

Fans of the Lunar Chronicles know Queen Levana as a ruler who uses her "glamour" to gain power. But long before she crossed paths with Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress, Levana lived a very different story-a story that has never been told ... until now.

With Fairest, Meyer is putting a spin on the Evil Queen from Snow White fame to show how Levana became the kind of woman who would rule the moon colony of Luna and want to take over Earth, too. Another unforgettable tale about love and war, deceit and death.

Marissa Meyer is the New York Times-bestselling author of The Lunar Chronicles. She lives in Tacoma, Washington, with her husband and three demanding cats. She's a fan of most things geeky (Sailor Moon, Firefly, any occasion that requires a costume), and has been in love with fairy tales since she was a child. She may or may not be a cyborg.

About the Book Launch Party!
Our Book Launch Party for Marissa Meyer's Fairest is a combination of a book talk & signing (books are available for purchase at the event) AND a celebration of the book's national release (the first day the book is available to purchase).  Everyone is encouraged (but not required) to come in costume. There will be face painting, a hands-on craft, lots of swag, refreshments, photo opportunities, and even a chance to share your thoughts about The Lunar Chronicles with the rest of the world. The winner of the online Fairest competition will also be announced. - http://thelunarchronicles.net/contest/
