Sarah Gailey signs Magic for Liars

Sarah Gailey & Greg van Eekhout

Sarah Gailey was a Hugo and Nebula Award finalist and the author of River of Teeth and Taste of Marrow. Magic for Liars is their eagerly anticipated fantasy debut. When a gruesome murder is discovered at The Osthorne Academy of Young Mages, where her estranged twin sister teaches Theoretical Magic, reluctant detective Ivy Gamble is pulled into the world of untold power and dangerous secrets. In a starred review, Booklist says "there’s something for almost all readers here....Gailey shows us that humans are humans, even when they are magic, and they are still flawed, damaged, and oh-so-interesting."

They are joined in conversation with friend of the store and local author Greg van Eekhout. He’s written books for adults and children, including the recently published Voyage of the Dogs, a middle grade book, about Lopside the Barkonaut, en route on the spaceship Laika to set up an outpost on a distant planet. His books for children include Cog, The Boy at the End of the World, and Kid vs. Squid; and his adult books include the Daniel Blackland fantasy books and Norse Code.
