Paolo Bacigalupi for his newest book, The Drowned Cities

06/03/2012 6:00 pm

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.

TICKETS ARE REQUIRED FOR ENTRANCE TO THIS EVENT. There are two ticket levels available - a single copy of Paolo's new book with a ticket that admits one for $17.99 plus tax, and a single copy of the book with a ticket that admits two, for $22.99.

TICKETS ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE ONLINE, BUT MUST BE PURCHASED AT THE DOOR. 

There is also a $5 student ticket available - and the ticket serves as a coupon for $5 off the purchase of Paolo's new book! However, the ticket is ONLY available at Bookworks and at the event, and you must show a student ID (from any institution) to get the student ticket.
