Author Visit: Margaret Peterson Haddix at UAPL

The Ohioana Book Festival and Cover to Cover are bringing author Margaret Peterson Haddix to the Upper Arlington Public Library. Margaret is the author of many critically and popularly acclaimed YA and middle grade novels, including the "Children of Exile" series, The "Missing" series, the "Under Their Skin" series, and the "Shadow Children" series and the recent "Summer of Broken Things".

Margaret will discuss and sign copies of her latest book "Greystone Secrets #1: The Strangers" (8 to 12 years).

The Greystone kids thought they knew. Chess has always been the protector over his younger siblings, Emma loves math, and Finn does what Finn does best—acting silly and being adored. They’ve been a happy family, just the three of them and their mom.


But everything changes when reports of three kidnapped children reach the Greystone kids, and they’re shocked by the startling similarities between themselves and these complete strangers. The other kids share their same first and middle names. They’re the same ages. They even have identical birthdays. Who, exactly, are these strangers?


Before Chess, Emma, and Finn can question their mom about it, she takes off on a sudden work trip and leaves them in the care of Ms. Morales and her daughter, Natalie. But puzzling clues left behind lead to complex codes, hidden rooms, and a dangerous secret that will turn their world upside down.

Cover to Cover Children’s Books will be on site to sell copies of her books including, "Greystone Secrets #1: The Strangers". The author will be available to sign books at the end. Seating is limited, registration information to come.
