Are You Jungle Curious? Reading, Talk and Slideshow: Into the Jungle, Erica Ferencik

Join Erica Ferencik for a brief reading from her new novel, “Into The jungle,” which Publisher’s Weekly calls “[A] ferocious fever dream of a thriller,” as well as a talk and slide show on the Peruvian rainforest where she spent a month researching the book. She says, “The jungle is an iconic place, yet it’s so distant from most of our realities that it’s often reduced to mindless metaphors: it’s a jungle out there, the jungle of the mind, the heart and so on. But what about the real jungle, a place few of us have been? What makes it so terrifying, unique, inspiring, otherworldly?”


Blast off with children/teen Sci-fi author KATIE SLIVENSKY

Porter Square Books welcomes children/teen author KATIE SLIVENSKY with her first book: The Countdown Conspiracy.  The Martian meets The Goonies in this out-of-this-world middle grade debut where the stakes couldn’t be higher.

Miranda Regent can’t believe she was just chosen as one of six kids from around the world to train for the first ever mission to Mars. But as soon as the official announcement is made, she begins receiving anonymous threatening messages…and when the training base is attacked, it looks like Miranda is the intended target. Now the entire mission–and everyone’s lives–are at risk. And Miranda may be the only one who can save them.

This event is not ticketed.

The Countdown Conspiracy is currently on pre-order at Porter Square Books.

If you cannot attend the event, you can still get a signed copy by purchasing the book online and mentioning in the comments section at checkout that you want it signed (or personalized).  This must be completed at least 24 hours prior to the event.

Award-winning novelist ANDREW SEAN GREER reads “Less” about love at the age of fifty

Join Harvard Book Store as they welcome award-winning novelist ANDREW SEAN GREER for a discussion of his latest work, Less.

What would possibly go wrong? Arthur Less will almost fall in love in Paris, almost fall to his death in Berlin, barely escape to a Moroccan ski chalet from a Saharan sandstorm, accidentally book himself as the (only) writer-in-residence at a Christian Retreat Center in Southern India, and encounter, on a desert island in the Arabian Sea, the last person on Earth he wants to face. Somewhere in there: he will turn fifty. Through it all, there is his first love. And there is his last.  Because, despite all these mishaps, missteps, misunderstandings and mistakes, Less is, above all, a love story.

This book will be for sale at the event for 20% off.  There will also be a signing after the event.

No tickets required for entry.
