Holiday Party 2019

Come help celebrate a Holiday Tradition with Mysterious Galaxy’s Seasonal Party! Readers and lovers of anything literary can look forward to enjoying refreshments and delicious foods while mingling with authors whose works run the diverse gamut of genre (and gift giving opportunity) needs. Staff will be readily available to make recommendations from our plethora of both books and creative gift items. We even have an in-store Staff Picks section, as well as many other books that have been read and reviewed by Mysterious Galaxy’s own.

Participants at present include:

  • Julie Berry, author of LONG AGO, ON A SILENT NIGHT
  • Sebastian Shepherd, author of THE RUINS OF OUR PAST
  • Melissa de la Cruz, author of THE BIRTHDAY GIRL

  • Keli Colombini, author of NORRIS THE NOSTRILEER
  • Marcia Berneger, author of A DREIDEL IN TIME

Middle grade readers can look forward to Matt Harry's Cryptozoology for Beginners, illustrated by Juliane Crump. In this book II of the Codex Arcanum series, teenage sorcerers Trish, Owen, and Perry are called back into action to discover why the world's magical creatures are disappearing.

Graphic novel fans will enjoy Dan Goldman's Chasing Echoes, a heartfelt tale about dysfunctional family dynamics, the ghosts of war, and what brings us back together.

In the mood for a good picture book? Julie Berry's Long Ago, on a Silent Night is a luminous celebration of unconditional love and joy, as well as the promise in every child. Get whisked away in Marcia Berneger's A Dreidel in Time as Devorah and Benjamin are mysteriously sent away to join the ancient Maccabees in battle. Kathleen Long Bostrom's The Worst Christmas Ever is perfect for anyone struggling with a long-distance move. Tickle your funny-bone with Keli Colombini's Norris the Nostrileer, a girl with wild pink hair and fabulous toes, but not quite fond of her nose.

Those craving something fantastical and festive will want Sebastian Shepherd's The Ruins of Our Past, an imaginative hunt through one man's past to change one single moment in his life.

For fans of suspense thrillers, check out Melissa De la Cruz's The Birthday Girl an enthralling tale of a life lived in shadow and its unavoidable consequences. If more of a mystery is what your craving, Tim Maleeny's fourth installment in the Cape Weathers Mystery series, Boxing the Octopus, promises some sinking-suspicions and offers a runaway tour of San Francisco's underworld.
