Husband and wife Young Adult author team Wendelen Van Draanen and Mark Parsons are hitting the road and we're happy to announce they're making a stop at Main Street Books! Wendelin will talk to us about her latest book, Sammy Keyes and the Killer Cruise. Mark Parsons will share his new novel, Road Rash. It's going to be a blast! Join us for the fun!
Wendelin Van Draanen has written more than thirty novels for young readers and teens. She is the author of the long running Edgar-winning Sammy Keyes series, and two four-book series for younger readers (Shredderman and The Gecko & Sticky). Additionally she has written several stand-alone novels, including The Running Dream, Swear to Howdy, and Flipped (named a Top 100 Children’s Novel for the 21st Century by SLJ and became a Warner Brothers feature film).
Mark Parsons has published primarily non-fiction, penning over a hundred articles for national magazines as well as a pair of non-fiction books. His debut novel, Road Rash, is a YA adventure about a high school boy who goes on the road with a band. It draws from Parsons’s many years of experience as a rock drummer.
This writing couple from California will discuss their books, the writing process, and how they’ve managed to share the same office for twenty years without bloodshed.
Wendelin was a classroom teacher for many years, Mark an instructor at a Fortune 500 company. They have two sons, two dogs, and two wild imaginations.
How Our Events Work
Main Street Books is proud to host many author events throughout the year. Our events are free and open to the public, unless otherwise stated.
To get a book signed at one of our events, a copy of the event book must be purchased from Main Street Books. By purchasing a book from Main Street Books you are not only supporting a local, independent business, but you are also showing publishers that they should continue sending authors to Main Street Books. Think of it this way: you wouldn't bring your own beer to a bar, would you?
