Bookworks, ABC Libraries and AMP Concerts are very proud to present award-winning science fiction/fantasy and young adult fiction author Paolo Bacigalupi for an event in Albuquerque at 6 p.m. on June 3, 2012. The event will be held at the UNM Continuing Education Auditorium at 1634 University Blvd NE.
Paolo is an exceptional writer and a master storyteller. His debut novel THE WINDUP GIRL was named by TIME Magazine as one of the ten best novels of 2009, and also won the Hugo, Nebula, Locus, Compton Crook, and John W. Campbell Memorial Awards.
His debut young adult novel, SHIP BREAKER, was a Micheal L. Printz Award Winner, and a National Book Award Finalist.
He currently lives in Western Colorado with his wife and son, where he is working on a new novel.
Paolo will be reading from and speaking about his newest novel, The Drowned Cities. About the book: in a dark future America that has devolved into unending civil wars, orphans Mahlia and Mouse barely escape the war-torn lands of the Drowned Cities, but their fragile safety is soon threatened and Mahlia will have to risk everything if she is to save Mouse, as he once saved her.
