Left Bank Books welcomes bestselling young adult author Scott Westerfeld, who will sign and discuss the newest novel in the Uglies series, "Impostors"!

 

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of "Impostors" from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.

 

Frey and Rafi are inseparable, two edges of the same knife. But Frey's very existence is a secret. Frey is Rafi’s twin sister—and her body double. Their powerful father has many enemies, and the world has grown dangerous as the old order falls apart. So while Rafi was raised to be the perfect daughter, Frey has been taught to kill. Her only purpose is to protect her sister, to sacrifice herself for Rafi if she must. When her father sends Frey in Rafi’s place as collateral in a precarious deal, she becomes the perfect impostor—as poised and charming as her sister. But Col, the son of a rival leader, is getting close enough to spot the killer inside her. As the deal starts to crumble, Frey must decide if she can trust him with the truth...and if she can risk becoming her own person.

Punch Brothers are the acoustic bluegrass quintet of mandolinist Chris Thile, guitarist Chris Eldridge, bassist Paul Kowert, banjoist Noam Pikelny and violinist Gabe Witcher. All Ashore, Punch Brothers’ fifth album and the first to be self-produced by the quintet, is both ambitious and easygoing, a lot like the “ridiculously eclectic” combo, as London’s Guardian once called the band.
