Join Shannon Hale and LeUyen Pham to celebrate the release of Best Friends. The creators of the runaway bestselling graphic memoir Real Friends are back with a true story about popularity, first boyfriends, and finding your own path. The author-and-illustrator duo will present a slideshow and take questions on their work process, their path to publication, and the inspiration behind their graphic novel series. A book signing will follow the presentation. Copies of both books will be available for purchase from The Beguiling.

Please note: the authors will be signing 3 books per person, only personalizing one.
